Analog Collection Name

Alabama Collection

Type of Content



Before it became a rallying cry and part of a title for a best-selling book, Rammer Jammer was The University of Alabama's celebrated humor and literary magazine. Published between 1924 and 1956, the Rammer Jammer captured a spirit and pride in The University of Alabama through jokes, articles, cartoons and photographs. Among the many contributors to the magazine over its thirty-two years of publication include some of UA's most notable alums including Harper Lee, Vic Gold, Gay Talese, Albert Boutwell, Grover Smith, Carl Elliot, and Mary Harmon Black (the future Mrs. PaulBear" Bryant).
