What's in a Name? A Historical Look at Native American-Related Nicknames and Symbols at Three U.S. Universities.
Connolly, Mark R.
Journal of Higher Education, v71 n5 p515-47 Sep-Oct 2000
Explores the adoption and use of Native American-related nicknames and symbols by three U.S. universities: the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Miami University of Ohio, and Eastern Michigan University. Historical case studies review how the nicknames were chosen, how they evolved, and why the decision either to keep or replace the nicknames can stir bitter conflict. (Author/DB)
