Grand Marshal Week is just ahead and the campus is covered in campaign signs. This past week, while looking through a scrapbook compiled by Dwinel French Thompson, I found a few news clippings regarding GM week during the 1870s. Before I get to that, I should tell you a little about Dwinel (interesting name isn't it?). Dwinel F. Thompson was professor of descriptive geometry and drawing from 1872 to 1917. He taught a course that students loathed, but they didn't hold it against him.
