The University of Chicago has an amazing archive of photos ranging back to the 1890s. We present as our daguerreotype boyfriends the University of Chicago Football Team, 1892. Link here contains more information about the players, which include Amos Alonzo Stagg, who contributed to a lot of the game of modern football and (as of 2011) has his name on the Stagg Trophy, awarded to the winner of the Big 10 conference championship in football.
