It's impossible to know for sure where this 2-foot x 4-foot cloth banner flag (EX) may have hung on Yale's campus, but the football stadium is as good a guess as any. Sewn-on felt lettering reads, "YALE / 1903." It is accompanied by a substantial 14x10x3 leather-bound, metal-clasp tome (VG-EX exterior, EX-MT interior) with gilt-embossed cover, "YALE / S.S.S. / '92 / Ralph M. Sprague." The beautiful Pach Bros. studio photography inside features 43 individual portraits and 2 class portraits. There is also a separate 3-1/2 x 5" studio photo of an unidentified figure by photographer J.T. Wiley.
