Cornell, coached by College Football HOF member Gil Dobie rolled 56-0 over Columbia en route to an undefeated season and a share of the hypothetical national championship. The games most notable particpant, however was not Dobie, but Columbia's senior right half back, Lou Gehrig, who played a little baseball as well. The original owner of this program was filling in the scores at the end of each quarter until Cornell's 28 point outburst in the third quarter put them up 42-0. Program is remarkably free of rips and tears, but there is some staining to both covers and heavy toning/oxidation to the covers and pages.
