Manuscript Collection
Great 1961 Rose Bowl Hoax Records

A small collection of historical photographs and artifacts from the 1961 Rose Bowl hoax pulled off by a group of Caltech undergraduate students, who changed three of the University of Washington card stunts. The documents reveal the full story of how the prank was carried out before a national television audience, during the scheduled half-time at Pasadena's annual Rose Bowl football game.
