What’s an Ichabod?
Learn More about what an Ichabod is
Washburn’s mascot, the Ichabod, honors the school’s early benefactor, Ichabod Washburn, a 19th century Massachusetts industrialist. The original design of the studious-looking, tuxedo-clad figure was created in 1938 by Bradbury Thompson (ba ’34), who became an internationally acclaimed graphic artist. Design wasn’t Thompson’s only consideration. To the stylized Ichabod the artist attributed the qualities of “. courage and enthusiasm, as shown by his brisk walk. He is democratic and courteous, for he tips his hat as he passes. Sincere in his search for truth and knowledge, he studiously carries a book under his arm. “
