After last Friday’s post about the polar bear races, I got several comments and emails about the greased pole climb. Lo and behold, yesterday I inadvertently ran across a set of pictures of exactly that. They’re undated, but I’d guess 1965 or ’66. A note on the folder informs us that the photos were brought in to the Woodson by electrical engineering professor Bill Wilson, the longtime RA at Wiess College. It’s very easy to imagine him getting a huge kick out of this.
