George Tucker holding Boxer


George Tucker holding Boxer


George Tucker, Pacific University Class of 1925, holding "Boxer," a bronze statue that was the symbol of Pacific University. According to a note he wrote on the back of the photograph, this was taken in a field on the outskirts of Forest Grove, Oregon. Another version of this photograph (PUA_MS95_26) includes a note that it was "taken near the bridge where Boxer was hidden by Lenore Conger, a Pacific freshman." The latter quote dates the photograph to 1924-1925. The photograph is hand-colored.
[Transcription of notes on back:] This was snapped in a field near the city limits of F.G. Since this was early spring and it was necessary to crawl under a fence or two, my cords were soiled. The photographer attempted to wash them. How do you like my tie? - G. E. T.
