Title

Richard Thompson's car, used as a getaway vehicle for 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, we see Richard Thompson's car, which was used as a getaway vehicle when transporting the Boxer mascot statue. The picture was probably taken near the old elementary school on the corner of SW Pacific Avenue and Highway 8 in Forest Grove. This photograph is from the collection of Richard Thompson, who retains the original print.
