Iowa Homecoming History: 1953

The Dramatic Art Guild won the grand prize for their “Showboat” float in the Homecoming Parade on October 23, 1953.

The next day, following Iowa’s 19-13 win over Indiana, fans gathered for the ceremonial burning of the Corn Monument. Students writing for the Hawkeye yearbook noted that “Homecoming at SUI would never be complete without the corn monument, a football victory, and an all-university dance.”
