ca. 1877, “A College Powwow” As part of Presentation Week, an event at Yale College, freshmen held “powwows” during the hours of the president’s reception: …Freshmen with all sorts of conceivable and practical disguises…march[ed] slowly across the college yard…for the purpose of celebrating their entrance upon Sophomore year.” (Harper’s Monthly Magazine, 1864) via The American Tintype, by Floyd and Marion Rinhart, Robert W.
