From the Hershey Community Archives: Cocoa Bean Football Game – Hershey Community Archives (hersheyarchives.org)
The Cocoa Bean Game began in 1943 as a community service project of the Rotary Club of Hershey and the Hershey Civic Club. The local football teams of Hershey High School and the Hershey Industrial School [now known as the Milton Hershey School] wanted to play each other. Ralph Hoar, then head of athletics for the Hershey Industrial School, is generally credited with the original idea for the game.
