1970s-era Ellicott Complex T-shirt

Photo of a vintage t-shirt with "I have an Ellicott Complex" slogan.

Carla Hornberger wrote in on behalf of her husband, Joseph Hornberger (BA ’79), to tell us about a beloved garment. “My boyfriend (now husband of 36 years) went to UB and lived in Ellicott our first three years—freshman year in Red Jacket and sophomore and junior years in Richmond. He bought this shirt before we moved off campus for senior year. He’s been wearing it since. I baby it in the laundry, so it’s not so bad for being almost 40 years old.”
