This snapshot from the late 1940s or early 1950s shows a group of young men, probably students at Washburn University. The only individual identified is Topekan Charles 'Chick' Gordon, who is seated in the front, on the far right. Gordon entered Washburn in the fall of 1947 and graduated in the spring of 1951. He excelled at both basketball and baseball, and was on Washburn's varsity squads in both sports. Gordon captained the basketball team his senior year. He led the team in scoring with 319 points, and played a key role in helping the Ichabods secure the Central Intercollegiate Conference league championship.

Date: Between 1947 and 1951
