First Beer Bike, 1957

These turned up a little while ago in some materials from Baker College. You can see that at some point they were in color, but they’ve now faded out to an almost uniform violet. And miracle of miracles, they came with careful labels:

Hank Coors? That seems almost too good to be true. Here he is crossing the finish line:

Not only do they resemble the Baker College Master and his wife, they actually ARE the first Baker College Master and his wife, Carl and Mary Wischmeyer.

Bonus: Here’s a link to an on-line exhibit about the Woodson’s collection of historical science books, created by Super Intern Susan Kirby. Prepare to be amazed!
