Butler University Oratory and Debate Team--1908

Butler's Oratory and Debate Team pose for a photo in the autumn of 1908. They were stronger in debate than in oratory winning several championships throughout the year. Only Sommer Robinson placed in the oratory category in a meet. Behind the young men on the wall of the classroom building you can barely see "04" painted on the bricks. It is doubtful that the Butler administration was pleased with this graffiti.

Pictured in the photo from left to right: John Spiegel, Clifford Browder, Fred Schortemeier, Sommer Robinson, Herbert R. Hyman, Oswald Ryan, and G. Claris Adams.
