"Forward the White" - The Bowdoin Football Fight Song
(information courtesy of John Cross '76)
“Forward the White” was a poem written in 1913 by Kenneth A. Robinson of the Class of 1914, in response to a Prize Song Contest ($50 for the winner). It took several rounds before the judges found a song that they felt would make a good college song. The music, composed by non-alumnus George Sumner of Vermont, was selected in 1914 from among a number of entries, again as part of a contest (with a $50 prize).
