Title

Richard Thompson holding Boxer

Description

Richard Thompson was a Pacific University student who graduated in 1963. While he was enrolled, his fraternity Phi Beta Tau won possession of the university's mascot, Boxer. In this photograph, taken around 1962, Thompson is holding Boxer, who is mostly intact, with all of his appendages except the ears and horn present, but with many welding marks as evidence of having been ripped apart in previous fights. This photograph is from the collection of Richard Thompson, who retains the original print.
