Blue Jay Gear

New "Old School" Blue Jay Gear for Alumni and Their Canine Companions

Alumnus Neil A. Grauer (A&S '69) created the now-iconic Blue Jay cartoon character for the Johns Hopkins News-Letter in 1966. Since then it has been an inspiration and de facto mascot for Hopkins athletics. To celebrate that half-century milestone, you and your best tail-wagging friend can sport the NAG Blue Jay in 2016 and be the most fashionable walkers in your neighborhood and at lacrosse games.
