View Full Item
This is a photograph (from left to right) of Art Linkletter, Carole (Bigony) Brennan, and Dale Wadams. According to Carole Brennan, the photograph was taken at a car wash put on to collect donations for the building of the Linkletter Natatorium in 1964. The actual print was produced in June of 1972, as is listed on the photograph. It was Arthur Gordon Linkletter who suggested that the college build a new swimming and diving facility for the intercollegiate and intramural athletics that could also be used to teach the College’s health, physical education, and recreation programs. Art Linkletter was the famed entertainer best known for his TV series "House Party" that ran on CBS from 1952 to 1969. Art Linkletter believed so much in the project that he sold his house for $250,000 and donated the money to the project.
Information on the date and the topic of the photograph provided by Carole Brennan in emails from September 2014.
