My Mission

Robert Sale-Hill’s poem, The True Origin and History of “The Dude” (The New York World, January 14, 1883) introduced the world to the word Dude, and kicked off a full-on Dude craze. A-Dude-a-Day[i] Blog is dedicated to preserving and sharing pics, pieces and poems from the early days of the Dude-craze of 1883. You can read more about the history and origin of the word Dude on my blogpost, "Dudes, Dodos and Fopdoodles" on my other blog, Early Sports 'n' Pop-Culture History Blog.

Dude #30 - Dude declines brain food

At breakfast the other morning a New York dude declined a piece of shad.  He had been told that fish food made brain, and he did not want to unfit himself for the position he held in society.

St. Tammany Farmer (Covington, Louisiana), May 5, 1883, page 3.
