Pansy the Mascot!

This is a great photograph! The image is produced by scanning a 2 ¼" x 2 ¼” negative into Photoshop then inverting it. This is one of four photographs taken of “Pansy” the goat, the original appearing in the October 26, 1940 issue of The Archon, and later in the 1941 Milestone. Standing next to Pansy is faculty member, Leander Kirk, and his son Paul. Pansy is introduced as the new Governor Dummer Academy mascot at a preseason football game in the fall of 1940.

*Question for our alumni: Does anyone know who owned Pansy and how she came to be the Academy’s mascot?
