This incredibly, wonderful, piece of Holy Name history was sent to us by the generousity and thoughtfulness of Chicago Cavalier Alumni Bill Allen. So it pays to RESPECT your rivals! Bill, all Holy Name/Garfield alumni and fans thank you for this piece of our history. The jacket, circa 1950's will be preserved.
An added note, due to Chicago Cavalier Alumni Bill Allen's contribution, he has inspired a project to display and safely store such items and materials of The Holy Name/Garfield Cadets for the enjoyment of fans at the Garfield Public Library. More info to follow.
...another treasure from Chicago Cavalier Alumni Bill! A 1961 t-shirt!!!
This photo is from Mike Cahill, he marched with The Pittsfield Monarchs from 1961-1965. This photo is from 19 1962. It was taken at "An Evening With The Corps" at Carnegie Hall.
In 1984 a 50th Anniversary video was made to commemorate the Holy Name/Garfield Cadets 50th year. The 25 minute video was only viewed by those attending the celebration dinner never to be seen again. Till now…..the video has lots of stills and film clips of the beginning years. 1914 thru 84. Music throughout…and ends with the 1983 semi final performance…
If you're an alumni, Holy Name/Garfield Cadets fan, or a drum corps history buff….you will enjoy this video….
