As part of Homecoming, Baylor’s Reunion Honor Classes – those who graduated in 1967, ’72, ’77, ’82, ’87, ’92, ’97, ’02 and ’07 — are invited to a buffet reception Friday night.
Let’s take a look back at what members of each of those classes might remember from their senior years at Baylor. For instance:
- The Class of 1967 saw construction begin on Moody Memorial Library (pictured above) and rooted on fellow Bear John Hill Westbrook as the first African-American player in Southwest Conference football history.
- The Class of 1972 welcomed Grant Teaff to campus for the first time and was entertained by on-campus performances from the likes of Elton John and John Denver.
- The Class of 1977 were around for the dedication of the Steven Hudson Memorial Bear Plaza (the old bear pit) and watched as the towers on Old Main and Burleson were rebuilt after having been destroyed by the 1953 tornado.
- The Class of 1982 commemorated the inauguration of President Herbert Reynolds and cheered on all-time Baylor athletic greats Walter Abercrombie and Terry Teagle. (more…)
