In 1940, a journalism professor named Joseph P. Murphy — a 1938 graduate of Creighton who was now the yearbook moderator, decided it was time CU had a more lively logo. He hired an artist in Ames, Iowa, to develop a caricature of a Bluejay, and it debuted in the 1941 yearbook.
1924 - 1940
The first logo was an actual blue jay, perched atop a branch with a circle around it. Called the “Birdwatchers Bluejay” logo.
