A special 50th Anniversary edition, inspired by the original artwork of Neil A. Grauer (JHU Class of '69) who had a version of this cartoon drawing of a Hopkins Blue Jay first published in the student newspaper in the spring of 1966. Before Hopkins lacrosse games, Grauer would draw the Blue Jay beating up the mascot of whatever team they were opposing. Those drawings were a favorite of Hall of Fame lacrosse coach Bob Scott, who dutifully clipped each drawing out of the News-Letter and displayed them for a decade in the Hopkins locker room.
It has remained a unique part of Johns Hopkins University athletic history ever since. Legend has it that many former JHU lacrosse players have had the NAG Bluejay tattooed after their careers at Hopkins.
