Program from the first Los Angeles Rams home game
About the Project
This souvenir program for a 1946 Los Angeles Rams preseason charity game against the Washington Redskins marks the first appearance of the Rams in the Los Angeles Coliseum. The program contains a message from the Los Angeles Times publisher and charity president, a message from the team publicist, a roster with player descriptions and two-tone portraits, and numerous advertisements for companies both extant and defunct. On Sunday, September 10, 2017, seventy-one years later, the Los Angeles Rams return to the Coliseum. Help transcribe this program to get in the spirit of the game.
