  • Recollections from the Archives: The Hudson Relay of 1913
    But before long the source of the Seniors surprising strength was apparent It was gasoline That is they had ridden in friendly automobiles to save breath The race the year before had been close in fact the class of 1915 won it by only ten yards Predictions were that this race would be close also The sophomores forged ahead in the second mile and had acquired almost a quarter of a mile lead in the first half of that distance But this was not to endure for several runners of 16 s best quality pulled up up up until at the 19th relay both Sophomore and Freshman were even Then Greek met Greek and a true tug of war ensued Up and down the hills and over the never ending level stretches they fought followed by frenzied wildly cheering adherents in dust covered machines Finally Ehlert Herbert and Shimansky three picked men from 1915 were pitted against Volk Schuele and Atwood of 1916 Each ran the race of his life to give his class the lead on the home stretch Finally the last runners were reached Parrish the sophomore vice president substitute runner for President Rosenberger was given a lead by Shimansky Taylor Freshman president came flying along behind bending every effort to make up the intervening space But the strain was too much and he suddenly collapsed having run only about half a mile Baird captain of the Freshmen team was riding along side in an automobile Upon seeing Taylor fall he jumped out and took up the race and being comparatively fresh he soon gained on Parrish then passed him and crossed the tape ten seconds before the latter Great was the joy among the Freshmen but on the protest of the Sophomores a consultation of judges was held When the facts had been rehearsed victory was awarded the 1915 team since Taylor did not finish his mile but allowed another to run the last half which was obviously unfair It was the 15 s turn to rejoice The mishap was unfortunate but wherever victory went both teams deserved credit for their remarkable physical endurance and fighting spirit which kept the result always in doubt The official distance was given as 22 8 miles the time of the winning team 2 hours 7 minutes and 42 seconds Runner dashes through the crowd of spectators Both Junior and Senior presidents followed later in turn the latter carrying Mayor Sullivan s message which read as follows The relay race of today affords the people of Hudson an opportunity to send you this message of appreciation of the interest which your University continues to manifest in this village the birth place of your University We are glad to assure you upon this occasion that the old Western Reserve College grounds at Hudson are being modernized and will continue to be an educational institution which we hope will be a source of pride and usefulness to Western Reserve University as it is

  • Recollections from the Archives: Student Satire
    equally at students and faculty These inside jokes puns and cartoons were often incorporated into the advertising section Draw your own conclusions about the significance of that placement The humor sections were most common during the early years of the 20th century They seem to have gone out of fashion by the mid 1940s Some choice examples can be seen in the University Archives Student Yearbook collection in Digital Case At Reserve student satire needed a broader platform for its full expression From 1924 till 1942 the students published the Red Cat Puns both visual and textual limericks cartoons one line jokes and satirical essays filled the pages Campus personalities and events and the news of the day were the targets of the Red Cat writers and artists In the first issue the editors explained themselves Next to football there is perhaps no college product which attracts as much attention and appeals to the reader as much as the humorous magazine The debut of the Red Cat heralds great things for the literary and artistic side of the University The University Archives holds complete runs of The Observer student yearbooks and the Red Cat and welcomes users who wish to explore or simply appreciate our students humorous perspective on university life Examples of Red Cat covers from the 1920s Posted by jmt3 at March 29 2013 01 12 PM Trackback Pings TrackBack URL for this entry http blog case edu archives mt tb cgi 26828 Comments Post a comment Name Email Address URL Remember Me Yes No Comments you may use HTML tags for style In Recollections the University Archives explores the people traditions programs and milestones that have shaped Case Western Reserve University Search Contact archives case edu subscribe RSS Feed for this Blog Categories Events and Activities People

  • Recollections from the Archives: Hudson to Cleveland: Constructing the New Buildings - Year 1
    now going up again January 16 1882 The buildings are getting along pretty well The weather has permitted the men to keep at work almost every day so far The main building is now up to a point beyond the tops of the second windows I think it will be done in time March 19 1882 During the summer Mr Cutler and I shall have to buy the furniture for the new building The amount of salary to be paid after we go to Cleveland was not fixed at the meeting but a committee was appointed to consider the matter with power to act and this committee will probably meet during the present week and may be able to settle the matter at one sitting The point to be settled first is the probably amount of income This can be decided only when we know what securities Mr Stone in going to make over to us The committee contained among its members the son in law of Mr Stone Colonel John Hay who was to get light on this point April 6 1882 Mr Cutler is busy trying to write a circular announcing the future of the college and the point now to be settled concerns the course of study It gives us a good deal of trouble to settle it he is coming in here in a few minutes to work at it with me Mr Smith has such a disposition that he does not add much to our resources in settling such a matter and Mr Potwin is a weakling and is moreover unwilling to go outside of his routine of work Charles J Smith and Lemuel S Potwin July 8 1882 I have been out to the college buildings for two or three days to correct errors of the workmen or more likely of the architect They have things all right now I believe The work is going on fast now whether fast enough to get through it yet remains to be seen July 21 1882 I have been detained somewhat by the necessity of looking after some things in the college buildings The treasurer is away and Mr Cutler is gone up the lakes to take some rest which is very necessary if he is to do any work in the autumn Dr Bushnell the new treasurer of the college promised to see to some of these things but he seems to be so occupied with removal and some such matters that he is in danger of putting them off too long July 26 1882 now almost every thing is done which I meant to do before going east We have got the range selected for the college building which Dr Bushnell and I had to select Ebenezer Bushnell Mr Amasa Stone provided 500 000 to move the college from Hudson to Cleveland Mr Smith was Perkins Professor of Material Philosophy 1870 1882 and Professor of Mathematics 1882 1913 He was also an alumnus of Western
