This article from the May 1981 issue of The DePauw about our Senior Class Gift is guaranteed to bring back a flood of great memories. Even after four years of struggling to find the money to support our Topper’s, Marvin’s, D.B. Cooper’s and/or Moore’s habits, we still managed to reach an impressive participation rate of 80%!
