St. John's College claims to be the third oldest institute of higher learning in the United States, tracing its origins back to King William's School which was founded in 1696 in Maryland. The state of Maryland chartered St. John's College in 1785 which King William's then became a part of. The College lost it accreditation in the early 20th century but bounced back with a curriculum focused on the Great Books and has endured ever since, even opening up a Santa Fe campus in 1964. This original St. John's College V-neck sweater, worn in in great condition, is a great vintage piece with lots of history but still with lots of life left. Fits like a large but please refer to measurements for exact size information.
