Fun Facts

  • In the 1940s, the University of Oregon mascot, Puddles, happened to resemble a certain Disney duck--a fact not lost on Walt Disney himself. However, when he actually met then Oregon athletic director Leo Harris in 1947, the two men agreed over a handshake that the school could use Donald Duck as its mascot.
  • University of Oregon student Phil Knight and former track coach Bill Bowerman founded the company Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964. But you may know their business by its current name, adopted in 1978: Nike.
