Beanie worn by a Syracuse University freshman, ca late 1940s. Beginning in 1893, tradition mandated that all freshmen wear beanies to signify their status as first-year students. They had to tip their beanies upon demand for upper class students. If caught without the caps, freshmen were subject to hazing. The benefits of the beanie, though, included the ability to identity fellow freshmen and the development of class camaraderie. The tradition fell by the way-side by the end of the 1960s.
