Cheerleaders smiling behind megaphones, Rice University
Four Rice University cheerleaders are shown posing with their megaphones, holding them before them so that their faces are hidden. Two male students are crouched on either end, with a third male and a female cheerleader standing between them. They are posed in front of a large hedge, with the arc-lamps from the stadium visible behind them. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
Originally called yell leaders, cheerleading started in 1916. The squad was male-only until 1953. In April of that year, Jane Ryba, Joan Ryba, and Carolyn Thomas were elected as the first female cheerleaders.
