New York City
Tom Harmon announced as Heisman Trophy winner (11/28/1940)
It was a different era before television and air travel, the winner was announced and then would make his way to New York for the Heisman Dinner. So it was on this day in 1940 that Ol’ 98 became the sixth winner of the Heisman Trophy.
