From the Archives: The History of the Hood Trophy

While the Haverford/Swarthmore rivalry these days consists of t-shirts and “Swat Sucks,” it used to include marching bands, cheerleaders, and a post-game dance between the two schools. In anticipation of this weekend’s game, The Clerk found in the Special Collections a piece of rivalry history; the first article in The Haverford News written about the Hood Trophy, the award exchanged between Haverford and Swarthmore that rebooted the Haverford/Swarthmore rivalry in 1941 in honor of Swarthmore alumnus Albert L. Hood, Jr., class of 1931.
