When swashbuckling became a Lindsey Wilson tradition

By Martha Berry

All of this discussion of Raider Bob brings to mind my nephew, when he was a student at LWC, sometimes in the 1960's, if my memory serves me right.

He would appear at the LWC ballgames wearing a swashbuckling hat and sword, ala Raider Bob, much to the embarrassment of his dear Aunt (me), and would stand at the end of the floor nearly under the baskets and swashbuckle all during the game. Now he would be right in style!! Shades of Erroll Flynn!! -Martha Berry
