UD prof seeks class blazers for collection University of Delaware associ- ate professor of consumer studies, Fran Mayhew is hoping to find a class blazer from each class year to add to the university&apos;s historic costume collection. From the 1920s to the late 1960s, sophomores returning to the University of Delaware each September knew something spe- cial would be waiting for them - their class blazers. Each year's blazer was distinguished by a unique pocket design, and could be ordered in navy blue or ivory with optional piping in gold or white. The blazers were worn for yearbook photos, to football games and on dates, Mayhew said. Women being serenaded by fraternity brothers always donned their blazers before they appeared to hear the songs, she added. The tradition came to an end in the late '60s or early '70s, when people were anxious "to break away from the establishment," Mayhew said. Anyone who may have their blazers stored in their attic or know of relatives who do, are urged to contact Mayhew at 302-831-8545 or via e-mail at <mayhew @>.
