Iowa Homecoming History: Forever Herky

This vintage image of a sharp-dressed Herky the Hawk appeared in a 1948 issue of Iowa Alumni Review and his likeness also adorned that year’s Homecoming badge. Over the years, this copyrighted emblem of university sports has appeared in many venues and doing many things—an enduring symbol of Hawkeye spirit.

In 2012, Herky will no doubt play another starring role in the Homecoming experience. As we gear up for a great weekend, we invite you to revisit past highlights through our Homecoming timeline, first published in 2008. Enjoy!
