Vintage Utes sticker

Vintage Utes sticker
"Utes" is the mascot name for the University of Utah. A few times in recent years there was talk of changing it, for fear of offending Native Americans. Certainly this old sticker would be considered politically incorrect. While U of U athletes are still Utes (also called Runnin' Utes), a more tasteful block 'U' with a feather is used for the logo. I don't know how old this stucker is but I'm going to guess it's from the 1960s.

This was found on a closet door inside a classroom at the West Institute building at the University of Utah. The room is used for private piano lessons, so there's not heavy college student traffic in there.
