Screen Shot 2022-05-03 at 12.46.21 PM.png

Since the early years of the University of Southern Mississippi, when it was the Mississippi Normal College, athletics have been an integral part of life at the college. In 1912, the Mississippi Normal College greeted its new students, and soon after, a student-formed athletic association was created with a football team.

The history of football at Southern Miss and the culture that surrounds it can be glimpsed through football programs. The University Libraries’ Special Collections has football programs going back to the 1930s. These programs not only provide readers with information on the players, rosters, and teams, but they also provide a look into community involvement and support. This online exhibit features examples of front covers, rosters, lineups, advertising, game summaries, and select full issues found in programs from 1936-1953.
