Allen 1961-62 cardigan sweater

Item is an email from Bill Allen to Charlotte Innerd (Associate Director of the Education Centre Library) that explains the cardigan Allen donated (Item 0013-01) and the dress code at North Bay Teachers' College in 1961-1962.


Item is a burgundy men's cardigan worn by Bill Allen during his year as a student at the North Bay Teachers' College. The cardigan is possibly made of acrylic and it has pockets, buttons, and two tags at the back of the neck reading, "Harv-Al / Sportswear Ltd. / Athletic Outfitters / 87 Isabel St. Winnipeg 2. Man" and "Do not dry clean." The cardigan also features two stripes in yellow on the left arm, and patches in white, black, pale and dark yellow. The patch on the left breast is the letter T with a C superimposed (possibly the initials for 'teachers' college'), and on the right arm is the number 62.
