Northwestern Home Game Programs Gallery

Part 3: 1931 through 1934
Posted 5/27/12; Updated 8/14/16

After the great covers of 1926-1930, NU continued to feature original cover art through 1934.

The 1931 covers featured original drawings, mostly by Albert Moore and Brad Pendleton, and by 1932 the covers were a mix of drawings and game photos.

This gallery section is missing only one cover: 1933 Iowa (home game at Soldier Field).
