Now that spring has finally arrived I thought it might be nice to post a baseball picture.

Game against Ball State. May 25, 1953

Isn’t this a beauty? The colors are as clear as the day they were taken in the mid-fifties. These slides were taken by W. Norwood Brigance – who taught Speech here at Wabash from 1922-1960. Thanks to his good work, we have a few color images of life on campus in the middle of the 20th Century. Nearly eveything else is black and white.

So enjoy the fresh air, the sun and the breezes and this lovely baseball image from more than 50 years ago!
