Where at Duke is the Blue Devil?

Flat Blue Devil makes a visit to check on an item from Duke's past

Flat Blue Devil made a trip down memory lane, visiting the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library, which is home to this Blue Devil doll that was donated to the Duke University Archives in 2010. The doll, originally purchased on campus in 1938, is made of straw with a wax head and blue felt outfit. The devil's tail has floral wire wrapped around it to provide stiffness.
