Suited up

From high-button shoes, to bloomers, to sailor’s kerchiefs, these Skidmore field-hockey players from 1919 are certainly wearing uniforms—but they’re not varsity uniforms. In those days, interschool competition was considered unladylike, so Skidmore students played among themselves or engaged in an occasional friendly match with a local club team.
     Sports have always been popular at Skidmore, but athletic uniforms have changed dramatically since Lucy Skidmore Scribner founded the girls’ club that developed into Skidmore College. Watch for more sports-fashion history in future Scopes.
