Throwback Thursday: 1964-65.

It was getting downright embarrassing. For over a year I've had two overstuffed boxes of Bill Bradley-era magazines, cutout newspaper articles and handwritten notes staring at me from across my TV room. A site member personally delivered them all last summer and for whatever reason I couldn't bring myself to start digging into bounty so daunting.

It took Brian Earl posting a Princeton scouting report for the Tigers' Final Four team to goad me into action.

So, for this week's "Throwback Thursday" you'll find 15 different scans from the 1964-65 season taken from disparate sources. There's some pretty cool one-of-a-kind stuff alongside images and drawings you may never have seen before. Click on any image to enlarge, and feel free to share memories in the comments or on our forum.

A program from the ECAC Holiday Festival.

Player-by-player Princeton notes from the same tournament.

Earlier today I scanned the cover of a "commemorative program" from when Princeton hosted Penn. Inside John McPhee's original A Sense Of Where You Are text was reprinted along with this team photo.

Bradley on the cover of a January 1965 Princeton Alumni Weekly.

Inside there's a two page spread of Bradley action shots, plus this plan for the "Cage-Auditorium" that you know now as Jadwin Gym.

Also in one box was the original New Yorker that also ran McPhee's feature on Bradley. It is accompanied by this caricature I hadn't seen previous.

These next three sepia-toned pages are stapled to thicker cardboard.

I believe this montage comes from the Princeton Packet.

This might be the neatest item in the lot - carefully hand-transcribed game-by-game statistics for the 1964-65 season.

Two games of typed notes. Colgate above, Lafayette below.

A second PAW cover, with less cropping than the original program cover that got me started today.
