8 1996.22.2 Beanie Beanies were used for freshman hazing from 1923 through the late 1950s. This was a tradition from many other colleges across the United States but was adopted by Iowa State Teachers College in 1923 after 2 years of debate by the student government. Starting in 1924, all incoming freshman males had to purchase and wear green beanies, and all freshman women had to wear green arm-bands. These beanies and arm-bands had the letters of their major and I.S.T.C. on them. They could be customized for the individual wearer, this specifically came into effect in 1945 when women began to wear the beanies. The beanies were to be worn from the day they were received, typically at registration, until a specified date that year. In most cases, they were worn until "Dad's Day" or Homecoming when the freshman had to challenge the sophomores for the right to remove their beanies or be forced to wear them through the end of the semester. Repercussions of men not wearing the beanie were severe, if a freshman was seen by an upperclassmen not wearing their beanie, they would be subject to paddling, blanket tossing, head shaving, or horse whipping. Women faced less severe punishments and were subject to ice buckets, general humiliation, and only on occasion paddling. The colors and types of beanies changed over the years, they started as green, in 1929 they became purple and women adopted the beanies, in 1931 they added green bills to the purple hats at the same time that they changed from arm-bands for the women to pins. In 1941, there was not enough fabric to make the beanies so there were a few years in which they were not used. When they returned in 1945, it was decided that they would only be worn by women. Each year, when it had been determined that the freshman could remove their beanies, they burned them or destroyed them in some other way after the annual de-capping ceremony. This purple and gold style was adopted by women in 1929 and was used in years to come as can be seen in the October 1955 issue of the College Eye (School Newspaper). Composed of six triangular sections of alternating purple and gold. A 1/2" border of gold runs along the bottom. ISTC is printed in purple letters on one of the gold sections. Center top button is purple. Tag on the inside indicates size 6 3/4. Color: PR,GD 1996.22.2 (Beanie) image
