Program Notes

Yale class of 1905 Stanleigh Friedman's two most famous marches are Glory for Yale and Down the Field, the traditional fight song written to exhort the Yale football team to crush rival Harvard:

March, march on down the field
Fighting for Eli
Break through that crimson line
Their strength to defy
We'll give a long cheer for Eli's men
We're here to win again
Harvard's team may fight to the end
But YALE! WILL! WIN!

This fine fight song has been adopted for use by many schools, including the Universites of Tennessee and Oregon.
