Pistol Pete

School mascot since around 1923, when Oklahoma A&M College was searching for a new mascot to replace their tiger (copied along with orange and black colors, from Princeton), a group of students saw a man whom they thought fit their needs, so they asked if he could be the basis for their new mascot and he accepted. A likeness was drawn and began to be used on sweatshirts, stickers, etc. and a tradition was born. Though Pistol Pete has been OSU's mascot since 1923, only since 1958 has someone worn the current garb and "head".
