c. 1920’s Oregon Agricultural College (OAC) Felt Banner – Oregon State University (OSU)

Dating to the early 1920’s, this is the oldest OSU (then OAC – Oregon Agricultural College) banner I have come across.  The calligraphy style font of the hand-stitched OAC letters is the best way to date it, as this style of letters started to appear around that time.  For being around 100 years old, this felt banner has amazingly vibrant colors and its large size (32 1/4 x 16) is unique.  Old OAC pennants are rare, but this is the first OAC banner I have come across, making it a neat piece of Oregon State’s history!
