COP Football, Box 100, 1958


The rest of of the negatives in box 100 are all related to football matches at COP.

There’s of course the Arizona State match of September 27, 1958, but also Brigham Young University (BYU) on October 11, 1958, and finally, Cincinnati on October 18, 1958.

I can’t tell from the images alone which negatives belong to Arizona State, BYU or Cincinnati. But double checking the Naranjado 1959 College of Pacific yearbook that was in the possession of Joel, gives us some idea.

Oh, yes, keep an eye out for Dick Bass with the number 22 ! Below, Dick Bass gaining yards with able assistance from John Williams and Earl Moreno.

COP-Cincinnati, Oct 18, 1958, Stockton, published in Naranjado 1958

The rest of the images are out of one of the 3 matches, there’s insufficient material and reference to accurately place them.

One thing is sure, Joel has a total of 13 images in the 1959 Naranjado COP yearbook, without any credit given.

The next few boxes and sleeves contain sport images from COP in 1958-1959, with possibly a few stragglers from previous matches.

But Joel is slowly weaning himself off COP and will be trying new things in the early 1960’s.

Cheers !
