Chi Delta Rho pheasant hunt 1963

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Participants left to right: Rob Pfisterer (Bill’s brother), Brother Joe Palmer, Brother Martin Dunbar, Brother Ken Laun, Brother Bill Pfisterer, Dave Morgan (owner of the hunting preserve).

This picture is from Brother Bill Pfisterer. He organized the hunt.

The pheasants were so fat, farm raised, that they could hardly fly. We could have probably caught them by hand. We were much slimmer and faster in those days, but much more hung over!

A big black Pheasant flew over Joe Palmer’s head, he shot at it, and put a hole right through the bird. The hole was the size of a fist, and you could see right through the hole.

Photos: Delta Kappa Homecoming 1957

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009


Many thanks to Delta Kappa Brother Charles Wilde for sending us this great photo of the Delta Kappa House at 219 Whiton Street.

Here’s a note from Brother Charles Wilde:

“The photos is of [our] Homecoming house display at our [219] Whiton Street home. It was taken in the late 50s in a year that we played the Eau Claire State College Blue Devils. It was probably 1957 or 1958. I’m not sure if the display was a winner!”
