1962 Oxford Tour of the US

In August and September 1962, eight winkers from Oxford University in England toured the United States, playing winks against college teams and other quickly-assembled teams.  Oxford's tour of the US left a lasting impact... the jump-start of intercollegiate play in the US in 1962.  In December 1962, winks at Harvard made Life magazine... one of the most prominent US magazines at that time.

Piece together the history of the Oxford tour and its impact on American winks by browsing through the following articles, reprinted here.
