Bradley Braves logo (1958)

Incredible Bradley Braves logo from 1958, grabbed from a New York Times Article about universities that have moved away from using Native American logos.  Interesting that Bradley retains the nickname “Braves” but has moved away from this logo.  Sure, it’s definitely dated and cutesy, but the name “Braves” seems much more offensive than this logo since it stereotypes Native Americans in a generic sense as warlike and hostile- the absolute last images that this logo conjures up.
