Ive always thought as a pre-teen that the "Universal S" dates back to the Gothic German letter 'S' due to its basic geometric attributes.
Maybe I'm wrong but I always felt like the symbol evolved from the old German fonts

I think the reason for its spread in schools is the ease in drawing it in lined writing paper. Draw the 2 pairs of 3 vertical lines between the horizontal lines in your book and then connect with diagonals.

It was in the 5th grade that EVERYONE in my class suddenly knew how to do this. I was so confused and nobody could tell me where it came from.

Maybe it doesn't have just one origin .
Maybe different people in different places came up with this pattern at different times.

In Greece we used to draw "S", the "S" line and "S" mile everywhere. No one ever told us it was a gangster sigh, just a drawing.

The symbole it self is simple, it looks nice and it's very possible that it was invented multiple times in many diffrent places

I learned it as the “Superman S” back in grade school even though it’s clearly nothing like it. I think that would have been about 25 years ago now.

It WAS on Stussy clothing. Back in the 80's there was run of tees and Porkpie hats that had it on. However, fuck, I can't even google a pair of trainers I owned in 2010, so they're gone to the ether. But I GUARANTEE they had them. I'm ASD and I remember fucking everything.
Clearly Stussy didn't invent it, but yeah, it was there.

There is a Stussy shirt on ebay right now with this logo, but it is the only one. I remember it too. They must have only used it for one season or something, because there is almost nothing left with that logo on it.

I encountered the Pointy S in grade school in 1974. England Air Force Base Elementary, Alexandria, La.
We called it the Striped S because it was colored in like a candy cane with alternating white and red diagonal bands.
When I asked my classmates where it came from, I was told it was from graffiti. Now, this is from 5th grade kids, which we all know are not the most accurate of information sources; but, it's interesting you found it used in graffiti in 1973. So, that' lines up.
Although, the Universal S may have its ultimate origin in knotwork. The way the S (or number 8) is constructed is exactly how an individual would go about making knotwork. Somebody happened upon the technique and things took off from there. It's certainly easier than spraypainting the outline of an S!

The “S” originated 250 years ago from a planet called Krypton by the House of El, which means hope.

After wachting this I recall drawing the "S" on top of a some school assignment we got handed in class about Mayans or something along those lines.
It was featured on a temple/wall and had the chain linked pattern.
After drawing this on every scrap of paper as a child, I recognized it on the photo; so it must've been close to the "S".
I'll try to find whatever it was and let you know if you're interested.
(it would certainly predate the examples given if it's as close as I think it was)
