School Colors


As far as anyone has been able to determine, the school colors of purple and white were never officially selected – they just happened.  Well actually, they were the colors named by Basil Brewer in Old Missou when he wrote the school song in 1902.  Everyone must have thought they were okay, because they seem to have been accepted along with the song.
