is some recent information a viewer of the item told me:
Ithink what you have is a freshman beanie from the University of NewHampshire in Durham. Back in the day, freshmen were required to wear these hats at the beginning of the year to show who the newbies were on campus. The practice faded out in the early 70s with lots of other traditions.
