Rocky Rockwell

On Sept. 27, 1941, a painfully shy Berkeley student named William “Rocky” Rockwell debuted as mascot Oski at a Cal football game. Rockwell had approached Colescott for help turning the art editor’s cartoon bear into a school mascot to replace the unruly live bears that reportedly were used for a decade.
