The Yeomen soccer team have set numerous records this year, including tying the 1988 team for most wins in a season. Oberlin entered the semifinal game on November 6 as the No. 3-seeded team, but the Yeomen were outlasted 1-0 by the Kenyon College Lords. (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)
A vintage Tuesday photo for you: the 1963 Oberlin Yeomen Football team is on oberlin.edu today! Six of the seven senior members of the team were present for their 50th reunion at Homecoming this year. (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)

My wife went to Oberlin and, from what I understand, pretty much everybody does a stint of organic farming after they graduate.
If they don’t do it already, I hope they start selling Oberlin-branded farm equipment in the school’s bookstore.
Congratulations Class of 2013! Be sure to let us know what you are doing – be it organic farming or something else – by posting in OBIEWeb!
We’re the Oberlin Yeomen. We Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight! We computate, read and debate from morning till the night. We’re Oberlin. We always win. We’re Oberlin. We always win. We’ll rise to any height.
We’re the Oberlin Yeomen. We fought, fought, fought, fought, fought.We aced the test but on the field our efforts were for nought. We’re Oberlin. We never win. We’re Oberlin. We never win. Some things just can’t be taught.That second verse…
If, um, you desire to sing this song, Oberwiki is here to help you out.
There’s not a lot of tailgating going on at Oberlin, but there are always a few groups hanging out by the stadium during the games (not just football, too). There isn’t a pervasive sports culture here, so celebration and support of the teams tend to centralize around the games proper.

We see some double Oberswag in this photo: varsity jackets AND and an Oberlin Folk Fest shirt.
Postcard of drawing by Bristow Adams, c.1903
Here’s a little gem for you all today, straight from the Archives postcard collection. This postcard features an illustration by journalist, professor, forester, and artist Bristow Adams (1875-1957). Notice the crimson and gold sky - the spirit of Oberlin is truly in the air. To get a sense of the accuracy of Adams’ illustration, compare to this photograph from our Digital Collections.
Aside from the creation of this postcard, Bristow Adams had nothing to do with Oberlin. He was a Stanford grad, and as a student he founded one of our country’s longest running humor magazines, the Stanford Chaparral. He also did some scientific illustration of fur seals in the Bering Sea while still a student, which can be viewed at the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections here. He remains most famous, however, for his illustrations of college athletics, a few more of which can be found over at the Library of Congress site here. For more information on Bristow Adams, head on over to the site of a fellow archive at the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at Cornell University Library.
Look at that dapper Oberlin footballer!
