What do you say about a guy who has been volunteering for Lafayette since 1927? “Attaboy” hardly seems adequate for John Wilbur Mack ’39 who, in the years since, has served as president of the alumni association and chairman, treasurer, and unofficial archivist of his class’ reunion committee. Mack had the advantage of growing up close to campus. On opening day of the 1927 season he asked coach Herb McCracken if he could be team mascot. McCracken took Mack into the locker room to meet the players and Mack soon was leading the team onto Fisher Field, where he served three seasons as mascot.
