COVER: PRINCETON BAND

Photograph by Lisa Larsen

Looking for all the world like a chorus backing up George M. Cohan, the Princeton band marches into Palmer Stadium. Their uniforms are a parody of Ivy League fashion: orange-and-black plaid blazers, skimmers with tiger-striped ribbons, gray flannels, black knit ties, white buckskin shoes. The 76-piece band, under the direction of Richard Franko Goldman, shuns goose steps and baton whirling but makes the welkin ring for Old Nassau. For more of the color of a Princeton Saturday, see page 15.
