A dramatic comeback: the history of sports at AHN

AHN Athletic Hall of Fame mural and 1913 yearbookPOSTMKTG is thrilled to have helped Academy of the Holy Names rediscover its proud 110-year history of athletics and put it on display. A new 150-foot mural celebrates milestones and nearly forgotten memories.

Dedicated to AHN’s long-time athletic directory, Carlo Cherubino, the athletic mural and its accompanying text required hours of research. Every yearbook published from 1910 on (which were all carefully stored in AHN’s temperature controlled archive) was carefully reviewed, photographed and cross referenced with period newspaper clippings, letters and memoirs, journal articles, photographs and other sources. Piece by piece, an amazing story emerged … one that no living member of the AHN community was even aware!
