Wanted -- A Shepherd
Willard Mullin
Original sports cartoon

1954. Fordham University in the mid-1950s was again faced with the decision of what to do with their collegiate football program. The Rams had won only one game and tied one while losing seven in 1954. Their long-time head coach Ed Danowski resigned after the season. The sport also was a money-losing venture. On December 15, 1954 Fordham University, once a national power, came to the end of 13 years of varsity football when it dropped the sport because of "the continuing financial loss." This would be the fifth time in its then 71-year history that Fordham decided to drop football and Willard Mullin depicts the Ram as a sheared little lamb, probably in 1954 while the decision was being made of how to protect the threatened property.

(Fordham established a club football team in 1964 and the sport was re-established as a Division III varsity sport in 1970. The Rams joined what is now the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision in 1989.)

Original cartoon by Willard Mullin, NY World Telegram & Sun. It is from this original drawing that the image was reproduced in the newspaper.

Willard Mullin has been called the "Rembrandt of Sports Cartooning" and created over 10,000 sport cartoons during his cartooning career.
