Just imagine.  This white oak was knocked down during last week’s storm. Our guys estimate the tree is over 100 years old.

The tree saw President Kane, our fifth president.  It likely observed a couple of young students, Byron Trippet ’30 and Frank Sparks ’56 walk across campus…and maybe skip class to sit beside it’s trunk thinking of the future.

It stood stately as it watched the Fine Arts Center grown in stages right across the street.  It has also seen the great advances under President Andy Ford H’03.

Can you imagine the article Steve Charles, the Wabash Magazine editor, could write it he could interview this oak?

I must have spring fever…better get back to work on Big Bash 2006.
