Newspaper Photographs

From the mid 1800's to the turn of the century, extremely popular illustrated newspapers such as Harper's Weekly, Frank Leslie's Illustrated, and Illustrated American pictured the news and sporting events of the times. Special artist-correspondents and photographers were present at the event to accurately document the scene as it was making history.  Within a week after the event these photographs were in the public's hands.  These illustrated newspapers brought this sensational game from the East coast to the rest of the country.  

Below are just a handful of photographs we have in our archive.  A special attention was obviously placed on photos containing Frank Hinkey and his Yale teammates.
