On December 5 1931, teams from Brown Dartmouth Holy cross and Yale played a charity tournament at Yale bowl. Labeled the Gloomy Bowl the teams raised money for charity as the US was in the depth of Great Depression. A chronicle of the event written by former Dartmouth SID, indicates the team event was great success with 28000 attending the Yale Bowl at $2 a ticket, Great chronicle on Ivy/Holy Cross history. Job well done Brown Bears,Dartmouth , Holy Cross Crusaders and Yale Bulldogs of 1931!
