Washington Huskies Logo

Wordmark Logo (1919-1922)

What is this Washington Huskies Logo?

Before 1920, The University of Washington had two mascots, the Indians and Vikings. In 1920, the Associated Students of the University of Washington (ASUW) voted to approve Sundodger as its official mascot. The mascot consisted of a smiling figure holding an umbrella. The Sundodger was likely chosen as a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the city of Seattle\'s rainy weather. In 1922, after deciding that Sundodger was probably a poor idea, the student body held elections for a new mascot. The issue with the Sundodger name lingered into 1922, when the student body felt that it held little to no meaning, nor was is truly representative of the state of Washington. In 1922, The Husky mascot emerged as the winner.
