Homecoming Button Bonanza

Many alumni returning to campus this weekend have a special flair for showing their Hawkeye spirit. Every year, they faithfully buy Homecoming buttons that demonstrate their support for Iowa. The 2010 pin, for example, allows UI fans to wear their “Hawkeye State of Mind” on their sleeves.

FYI, an e-newsletter for UI faculty and staff, recently published this photo essay featuring Iowa Homecoming buttons over the years. Dating back to 1911,  the pins feature everything from gridiron greats to Herky the Hawk, the Old Capitol to corn on the cob. Check them out, and then tell me about what’s in your Homecoming button collection.

How ‘bout them Hawks?
