See if you recognize anyone on this page from the 1952 Savitar.
Since his first pony ride at age 7, Abbey, BJ ’52, was hooked on horses. His Columbia Missourian beat was Stephens College horse shows. His 60-year career includes covering races for the Buffalo (N.Y.) Courier-Express and writing two equestrian books. Today, he attends grandkids’ sporting events and writes about them for family.
Mad Men reminds Bartram, BJ ’52, of his days at the St. Louis advertising agency D’Arcy — from the way they dress to the three-martini business lunches. After a few years at D’Arcy as a copywriter for clients including Anheuser-Busch, Bartram started his own agency. He lives in Lynchburg, Va., with his wife, Lee.
The ice storm and the Tiger football win over Southern Methodist University and Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker — both in 1948 — stand out to Buchanan, BJ ’52. “It was fun,” he says. “That’s why I wasn’t a straight-A student.” He runs the family industrial textiles business, G.H. Buchanan and Sons, with his two brothers.
