A similar photograph appears with the article “Caltech Grid Squad Working Twice Daily for Opening Game With Loyola Next Week, Five Veterans Out For Team, ‘Fox’ Stanton Not Optimistic Over Prospects, Usual Tricky Formations on Parade at Pasadena, Engineer Open Season With Lions at Ball Park,” Los Angeles Times, 13 Sept. 1933. Caption reads: “Ready to Engineer a Graumanesque Gridiron Opener. Here are the pigskinning lads of California Institute of Technology as they are likely to line up against Loyola at Wrigley Field a week from Friday night. The linemen from left to right are Miller, Gregory, Davis, Nollan, Jones, Mathewson and Moore. The backs presented are Donahue, Capt. Sharp, Parker and Rooke. The Engineers and Lions play the first local game of the 1933 season and everything points to a large gathering of hungry pigskin followers. (Times photo by Duke Ledford)”
Eleven football players, in dark jerseys, posing lined up to play, Bob Jones holding ball, on Tournament Field, with goal post, other players, trees, and buildings in background
Loyola defeated Caltech 46-0 the following week. Quarterback Robert P. Sharp went on to become the Chairman of the Division of geological sciences at Caltech from 1952 to 1968.
