From Doctor to Artist: David Fraser '65

The former president of Swarthmore College and renowned epidemiologist known for leading teams that unraveled Legionnaires’ disease and toxic shock syndrome, Haverford biology major David Fraser '65 has approached his late-in-life art career with the same zeal and curiosity he employed as a scientist and physician.

History Lesson: Haverford Cheerleaders

Cheerleading—of the all-male variety—had a venerable history at the College. According to The Record of the Class of 1948, the cheerleading squad of that year had six men and the group’s captain was also charged with emceeing pep rallies, as well as the “fireworks-bonfire extravaganza before the Swarthmore game.”

In the late 1950s, it appears that the cheerleading corps went co-ed for a time, bringing in Bryn Mawr students to fill out the ranks. By the early 1960s, though, cheering had turned into an all-female affair.
