The age of the white felt dink is unknown.
The red "bucket-style" hat with the brim up in the back, was used as a dink for a Chi Omega chapter in Ohio in the 1950s

My alma mater (U of Montevallo, formerly Alabama College) used to have a number of hazing traditions, both before and after coeducation in 1956. Senior March (see link) hung on until the early '90s:

Expected? No. Inadvertently have because it was given to them at say, new student orientation? Sure. Freebie stuff like day planners, sunglasses, those drawstring bookbags, etc.

I'd imagine many first-year students would be so "too cool for school" to wear a beanie, and some would cry hazing (bc OMG my life and livelihood is threatened by wearing a hat!)

I want to know when "DON'T CARRY A PURSE OR EVERYONE WILL KNOW YOU'RE A FRESHMAN" died. My 17 years older than me cousin told me that, and she was right.
