Neil Cunningham '61 at the Greek Bowl

Seriously, Bob Richardson '61 says there can't be but one or two of his photos left that we haven't seen.  He thinks he took this shot of classmate Neil Cunningham at San Diego State's Greek Bowl sometime during the 1958-1959 school year.  As an interesting aside, George Lincoln Rockwell, chief poobah of the American Nazi Party, was invited to speak at the Greek Bowl during Bob's Freshman Year at State.  You can read what happened -- and listen, too -- via links I've provided.  Click HERE to check it all out.
