Gymnastics Exhibition Team Program (1960)
Description:
Springfield College published this souvenir program in 1960 and sold copies for thirty-five cents each for the 1960 Homeshow. The program provides information about the college’s gymnastics exhibition team, which was in its 52nd season. Produced under the direction of Frank A. Wolcott, Walter A. Johnson, and Irvin R. Schmid, the program was dedicated to Springfield College alumni who competed in Olympic Games. As well as naming team members and providing a page for the audience to track scores, the pamphlet includes a message from Springfield College President Glenn A. Olds expressing thanks for hospitality shown to the team. It also includes the college's history, an article by Ellis H. Champlin extolling gymnastics, a page by Richard W. Kipperman describing the school’s athletic program, and information about women’s gymnastics. Throughout the pamphlet are photographs of the gymnastics team performing.
