Army Caps Another Historic Season


 

This is perhaps our favorite Army-Navy cover of all time, commemorating the just-completed victory in World War II, and it also marked the end of another National Championship season for the Cadets. Navy itself was a leading powerhouse that year, having come into this finale also undefeated. The artist on this was the old Washington Evening Star cartoonist Gib Crockett, who illustrated the program covers for many Army-Navy games over the years.
