Can you help provide photos of early DCI participating corps?

Steve Vickers, DCW Publisher

Drum Corps World and Drum Corps International are working on a project that requires photographs dating back to the 1972 season and the championship events held at the University of Wisconsin’s Warhawk Stadium in Whitewater, WI.

Most of the material will come from the archives of Drum Corps World in Madison, WI, but there are a number of smaller corps that very few, if any, pictures are available from that time period.

If you can help by providing good-quality images of the following corps from the 1972, 1973, 1974 and 1975 seasons, please contact Steve Vickers at We can either borrow the prints for scanning at the DCW office in Madison, WI, or we can accept JPG files at 300 dpi, e-mailed to Steve Vickers.

The photos do NOT need to have been taken at the DCI Championships, but they DO need to be from the SPECIFIC SEASON indicated for each corps listed below. We are looking for images that show more than one person, show the uniform from that season well and are action shots — NOT formal group or posed pictures.

If you can send one or more prints or images of the following corps, please mail to . . .
