Shortly after the franchise name was chosen, Boston Globe artist Phil Bissell drew a cartoon of a Minuteman preparing to snap a football and owner Sullivan liked the drawing so much that he selected "Pat Patriot" as the team logo. On April 1, 1960, Boston University Field - the former home of the Boston Braves - was selected as the first home of the Boston Patriots.

The exhibit will focus on cartoonist Phil Bissell's creation of the original Pat Patriot logo and his many drawings used on Patriots game programs throughout the 1960s.

Bissell, who was a cartoonist for the Boston Globe, created the original Pat drawing for the Globe. Upon seeing the drawing in publication, Patriots owner Billy Sullivan reached out to Bissell to secure the revolutionary soldier hiking a football as the team's logo.

Bissell created the game program covers for several years using humor and creativity to create original artwork. He recently published the book Patspa, in which he shares the story about how he became a cartoonist and created Pat.

Phil Bissell was working as a Boston Globe cartoonist when the Patriots first received their name. A Globe editor asked Bissell to illustrate a potential logo and in 45 minutes, Bissell had Pat Patriot. The team loved the drawing so much that they paid Bissell and took the logo as their own. Over the years slight variations have been made to Pat, such as the more fierce eyes that are recognizable today, but more or less the logo has survived since that first assignment.

In a profile with USA Today, Bissell said, "Pat is just a living legend. People just like Pat. They seem to know this guy is getting down to business. He's going to give it all."
In late 2014, Bissell published a book called PatsPa! about his cartoons over the years, focusing on his various drawings of Pat Patriot over the years for the team.
