The Legend of Old Kim
First appearing as an illustration of a cowboy on horseback on the cover of the 1955 yearbook,
Cameron’s mascot was soon redrawn into a caricature that strongly resembled “Pistol Pete,”
Oklahoma State University’s mascot. In 1960, the cowboy was given the name
“Ole Kim” by 1916 Cameron alum B.W. Jolly during a contest sponsored by the campus.
In 1964, a costume was created and word by journalism student Jeanne Desaustel
for the homecoming parade and a tradition was born. From 1962 until 1992, the student
portraying Ole Kim was selected through competitive tryouts. The studnet’s identity remained a
secret until a special unmasking ceremony during homecoming. Over the years, four different costumes
were used and more than 25 students boosted school spirit as Ole Kim. No longer portrayed as a
cowboy, but as a prospector, Ole Kim is described as an ex-U.S. Cavalry officer from Fort Sill
who sought his fortune in the Wichita Mountains gold rush of the early 1990s before becoming
a cowboy, then a Cameron Student.
