Okay, so this is NOT a photo of the Big Bash, but I love it for its summer time feel. This is a photo of Ralph’s Mother a campus wide event held in the spring of 1968. To understand a bit more about this incredible event, here are a couple of articles from The Bachelor.
And it is clear that Ralph’s Mother was a hit on campus.
Here is a letter to the Editor from a student expressing his delight with the event.
I hope that you have enjoyed this look at Ralph’s Mother, it looks like it was quite an event! I love the Big Bash and the stories that I hear from the Wabash men who return. I love the questions we field here in the Archives, but most of all I love the sense of time stopped as the guys gather and laugh, all young again.Best, Beth Swift Archivist Wabash College
