The 1931 Iowa State Band

The Iowa State Band was organized eleven years ago with a membership of fifty.  Since then it has grown so much that there are now two bands, a Concert Band and a Training Band, in which the students gain the experience needed to qualify for the Concert Band.  The Concert Band has a membership of almost a hundred men.  The Band, decked out in its Cadet Gray and Red uniforms, gives an annual fall concert and several spring concerts, and in addition, it appears at all athletic events.  Professor Hawley has been the conductor for the past ten years.
