Photograph of USC freshman football player John Boyle (left) and freshman football coach Cliff Herd, 1919, both in football uniforms at Bovard Field on the USC campus. The photograph is attached to some brown paper with notes from Cliff Herd on both sides of the paper. Also attached to the piece of paper are part of a newspaper article about Cliff Herd, a letter and signature from George Bovard (then-USC president - could be a contract), and a colour cutout of a football player drawing from the 1910s. This might have been a page from a scrapbook. The text lists the 1919 freshman team and discusses Herd's arrangement with Harris Trust, his employer, so he could coach the football team in 1920.
1 photograph: b&w, 3 x 5 in. attached to a torn brown piece of paper, 5 x 7 in.
