Richard Elton, home on Hartwell lawn?

Jeanette Banker, asking about address of Richard Elton who taught here ca1950-1960s. She thought he lived in one of the former homes on Hartwell lawn, but according to directories he lived on 44 Holley. Interesting question though, I am not sure how much, if anything, we have on the houses that once stood along Utica & Monroe in what is now campus lawn by Hartwell. I think they were acquired and demolished or moved ca1950 or so. Something to look into when have a chance...

Men's Baseball

Had a query re someone's having played baseball here in the early 1980s, and discovered that men's baseball seems to have ceased about 1976, and then according to the 1987 Saga, it resumed in 1984.
