Oldest alums at alumni weekend in 1989

From a 1989 photo - The oldest man and woman attending ONU's alumni weekend were Dr. Calvin Jackson of Kenton and Mrs. Jesse Klingler of Ada.

Dr. Jackson received a B.A. in 1927. Mrs. Klingler received an arts certificate in 1914. The honorees received the Willis cane and pitcher. Gov. Willis was an ONU graduate, well-known for his oratory, who was entering the race for U.S. president when he died suddenly.
