Living and Dead

Your feel-good Williams article of the day comes from the New York Times.

All around the room, alumni living and dead are staring at the kid. On one dark, oak-paneled wall, a picture of the 1901 football team — smallish players with their hair slicked back and parted in the middle in the style of the day — looks down. From the folding chairs crammed tight around tables, old men with hair either gray or gone, look at him and nod.

In a clear, strong voice, the tailback addresses the room.

Without looking, can you guess the year of publication? Read the whole thing.

For those of you who have not experienced a Williams Sideline Quarterback Club luncheon come on down to the foot of Spring Street at the Log – each Wednesday immediately preceding a Williams varsity football game (home or away) at noon for about an hour. Williams football festivities involving players, coaches, youngsters, old timers and visiting firemen and firewomen. Ladies especially welcome!

That sounds like so much fun, Frank. Wish I had known about when I was last there.

But, there’s next time.
