The Princeton Tiger displays courage on the gridiron by posing with his genetically correct counterpart in this undated photo. The University briefly had a live tiger mascot when the father of football player Albert Howard ’25 brought a tiger he captured in India here in 1923. After several weeks of community anxiety, the tiger was given to a zoo. In 1949, fundraising plans to purchase a tiger cub were postponed, and apparently never resurrected, by backers of the Campus Fund Drive.
