Charles McGill holding Boxer


A photograph of Charles McGill holding Pacific University's Boxer mascot. Charles McGill was in the Pacific University class of 1930; he attended on a scholarship as a freshman, and then transferred to the University of Washington. He later became a doctor and married another Pacific University alum, Edith Hansen. The original Boxer mascot was a gift to the school from a missionary named Reverend J. E. Walker, who acquired Boxer while on a mission trip to China. This photograph appears in an album that was compiled by Edith Hansen McGill, a 1930 Pacific University graduate.
