    HARVARD FOOTBALLER CABINET. In a carefully orchestrated studio pose, this young collegian summons our admiration.  He was a member of the very early football squad at Harvard and, if we should believe the penciled identity scribed on the reverse, his name was Littauer.  That notation also provides the date "'78."  Sure enough, one amongst that team was by this name.  He earned a varsity letter in 1877 at Harvard, and we never hear from him again.  As may be interpreted from this photo, football in those days was not given to 60-yard, perfect spiral forward passes.  This piece is a beauty.  Ordered from the studio (G.W. Pach), it was promptly stored away and is now available in NM/MT condition.
