I saw this hat on an actual person at the last home game. You would not be shocked to find out that he looked precisely as you imagine him in your head...

I like it too. To bad every other team with a Tiger mascot has the same logo.





I think Princeton and Pacific also use the same logo

Best logo anywhere on campus is painted on the old bowl under the east upper deck near the escalator.

That's not a "freshman hat." Freshmen wore beanies. It is a Chinese servants' hat, first used on notebooks and other writing supplies by CO-OP Bookstore at least back in the fifties, later copies by AU and Mizzou.

ETA: Follow-up article.

Unlike the original article, Anderson’s includes extensive research and quotes linking the creation of the logo back to Evans.

Arthur Evans—head artist for the Angelus Pacific Co. of Fullerton from 1932 until his retirement in 1977— [was given] the moniker of “Most Prolific Cartoonist,” reporting that he was responsible for at least “90 percent of the college mascots” being used at the time. “Art Evans is a legend around here,” longtime Angelus office manager Jean Ruppe is quoted as saying. “Colleges and high schools would send a rough idea of what they wanted, and Art would get busy and come up with a sports mascot.”

“Your Oswald was drawn by Arthur Evans—Dad always said you could tell Arthur’s work by the eyes,” says Tim Waddell, president of Angelus since 1993 … But as to where he appeared first—well, that’s anybody’s guess. “Back when your tiger was originally done, nobody had even heard the word licensing,” Waddell says. “If Art drew a good tiger and somebody wanted a tiger, we used it.”

Yes, Waddell basically says that they don’t know what school used it first, but given that Arthur was literally a few miles from Occidental College, it’s a pretty good assumption that it started there. It definitely didn’t start in Baton Rouge, or Auburn, or New Jersey.
