Leonard G. "Matty" Mathias (1900-2001) graduated from the University of Maryland in 1923, receiving a B.S. from the College of Arts and Sciences. Mathias served as the assistant manager of the football team and was a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity. This collection contains a memory scrapbook belonging to Mathias that documents his time at Maryland. Included are photographs of the football team, athletic tickets and schedules, dance cards, names of Mathias' classmates, and two student "dink" hats. Of particular note are three photographs taken at President Warren Harding's inauguration in 1921. In addition to the scrapbook, several loose photographs, newspaper clippings about university athletics, and issues of the Diamondback student newspaper are available.
