Dink (front)

Item Description

A "dink" was a hat worn by male freshmen students at Duke. The dink, marked with the wearer's class year, was required to be worn by male freshmen each day of the fall semester, unless Duke won the Duke-UNC football game in the fall. Dinks were a way to readily identify freshmen on campus. This dink was worn in 1944 by a member of the Class of 1948.
