Comments
America’s first underclassman a cappella group, based at Yale University. When first writing about the newly-formed a cappella group, the editor of Yale’s yearbook was unsure of the spelling of the fledgling group and added a question mark in parentheses as an editorial mark. The group liked the look of it and the parenthetical question mark has remained ever since.
