Historical NoteReturn to Top

According to the 1930 University of Idaho yearbook, freshman J. Morris O’Donnell wrote the words and music of Go, Vandals, Go as the freshmen class entry in the annual student music and spirit competition. The song, explained the yearbook editors, was performed by a male chorus accompanied by a 14-piece orchestra and was a “decided hit.”
