Back Matter

The University of Iowa’s student newspaper, the Daily Iowan, compared Mayes McLain, the new star of the university’s football team in 1928 and a transfer from an Indian boarding school, to other Native American players. Typically, sports sections at the time used generic caricatures like the one at the lower left, in place of the fearsome images they had used earlier to represent Pan-Indian cultures. For more on how media treated McLain in the context of racial attitudes prevalent at the time, see Sarah Jane Eikle-berry’s article in this issue. Image from Daily Iowan, November 9, 1928.
