In 1925 “The Cavalier Song,” written in 1923 by then-student Lawrence Haywood Lee Jr., was chosen in a College Topics contest as UVA’s best fight song. The song inspired a moniker for the athletic teams that stuck: The Cavaliers. A few years later, a caricature of the “Virginia Cavalier” appeared in a Washington Post advertisement. He is moustached and wearing boots, widely cuffed pants, a jacket and long gloves and a feather stuck into a wide-brimmed hat; his sabre is drawn. Since then, the Cavalier mascot’s overall look has remained the same, but some of the details—most notably his facial hair—have evolved.
