No More Doggin’, Roscoe Gordon (1952) One of the original Memphis “Beale Streeters,” Roscoe Gordan‘s breakout hit Booted made No. 1 on the R&B singles charts in 1952; No More Doggin‘ made No. 2 the same year. Gordon (and Fats Domino) influenced Jamaican pianist Theophilus Beckford, and Gordon’s back-beat style is credited as the foundation of Jamaican ska, bluebeat (Jamaican R&B) and reggae.

The Colonel -1981 Eastern Kentucky University yearbook

In the 1920’s, Eastern students who wished to be known as something other than “The Maroons” voted for the Leopard as the school mascot. A plan to purchase a leopard from the Memphis, Tennessee zoo came to nothing and the students remained Maroons.

In 1963 President Robert Martin established the Colonel as the mascot, who continues in that capacity to the present day. The original Colonel design was by Louisville Courier-Journal editorial cartoonist Hugh Haynie.

From Lustige Blätter 1919.

Funny papers was the title of a German-language satire magazine. After a brief start-up phase in Hamburg, the magazine was published as a weekly newspaper from 1886 to 1944 in Berlin. It was founded and published by the writer Alexander Moszkowski.
