The I.S.C. Student, “Early Cy” 1903.

Issue: Fall 1903 (exact date unknown)

One of the first illustrations to appear in the Iowa State Daily – then The I.S.C. Student – comes on the heels of a good football team. The team had had a “Cyclone” for about eight years at this time. I can’t help but see a little Tornado Cy in the illustration. However, Cy wouldn’t make his debut for another 51 years, and it’d be another 92 years before Tornado Cy was released.

This is the only illustration by H.M. Miller.
