1960 Vintage Idaho State Bengals T-Shirt

By Vintage Brand™ not affiliated with or sponsored by Idaho State Bengals
The Bengal mascot has a long and storied tradition at Idaho State. When ISU was known as the Idaho Technical Institute, athletes were dubbed the "Bantams", but since neither their size nor behavior conformed with the name, it was never very popular. In 1921, Ralph H. Hutchinson became Director of Physical Education and Athletics. A graduate of Princeton, Hutchinson immediately organized an "I" Club, and the group's members adopted Princeton's Bengal Tiger as its mascot. In 1931, the tiger clawed The Idaho Techniad off the school newspaper's masthead, and replaced it with The Idaho Bengal.
