Professor of Chemistry Richard F. Dallinger was scorekeeper for his 400th basketball game last week, against DePauw. Rich began his scorekeeping career as a manager for his high school basketball team. Rich joined the Wabash chemistry faculty in the early 1980’s, and became team scorekeeper in 1987 at the request of Coach Mac Petty.
His son, Greg Dallinger, is currently a visiting instructor of chemistry at Wabash and has an office next to his dad’s office in Hays Hall. Greg also works beside his dad as a spotter during the games.
