Ribbon Cut for New 'DePauw Boulevard' in Indianapolis

November 15, 1968

96149November 15, 1968, Greencastle, Ind. — DePauw has expanded to Indianapolis.  Sort of.  Today, ribbon-cutting ceremonies were held on the northwest side of Indianapolis for a new street to be constructed there, DePauw Boulevard.  John Burkhart, president of College Life Insurance Company and 1928 graduate of DePauw, joined with the University's President William E. Kerstetter and the DePauw Marching Band at the event. (photo: Burkhart and Kerstetter do the honors)

DePauw Boulevard will be located within College Park, a new collection of office buildings.  The half-mile long street will lead to the site where College Life Insurance's new headquarters will be located.

All of the streets in College Park will be named for Indiana colleges and universities.
