Description

This postcard, which according to the front is “Compliments of Student Council,” comes from a unique time period in RIT history when the marketing of the institute combined old and new elements. Announcing the “Rochester Institute of Technology Tigers,” this postcard features an early version of the tiger mascot. However, the large “R.I.T.” letters on the front are grey and outlined in blue, indicating that the postcard dates from the early 1960s, the period after the tiger logo was adopted, but prior to the color change to brown and orange in 1964.
