Thanksgiving Dinner Menu/Program from 1902 for Ohio Medical University, coached by Ohio State's first paid coach Jack Eckstorm. "Although he was called the father of modern Ohio State football for the job he did there in those three seasons, many early football loyalists remembered him for the job he did for the Medics in 1902. That OMU eleven was dubbed the strongest team that ever represented any college in Ohio. They had just one setback on the season, a hotly contested 6-5 loss to Notre Dame."

Ohio Medical University would merge with Starling Medical College and then eventually become OSU College of Medicine.  Program is in excellent shape with light pencil scribbles on the back cover.
