Buttst Regards from the Brotherhood of Billygoats!
Without question, the “punniest” postcard in our collections! “Tripping over for a beer,” really? (audible groans)
We found another reference to and further explanation of this fabulous postcard in an article from the Wisconsin Alumni Magazine (June 1946) titled “Once there was a brotherhood of Billy-Goats.”


Pre-war residents of Wisconsin’s men’s dormitories will recognize the accompanying reproduction of the Billygoat Brotherhood’s postcard, a take-off on life at the dorms in the “good old days…”


Postcard from Siebecker House (Adams Hall) scrapbook, c. 1940/1959. Accession 2012/777.
