Title

Tom Gidley, ringing the Victory Bell, Homecoming, 1948

Description

Tom Gidley, an alumnus from Malvern, Iowa rings the Victory Bell after the win over Colorado at Homecoming 1948.
Alumni first began returning to Iowa State for an official Homecoming in 1912. Since then, the celebration continues to entertain both young and old Iowa Staters, with traditional events, including tailgate parties, fireworks, lawn displays, ""Yell Like Hell"" cheering competition, and mass campaniling. Currently, the Student Alumni Association Leadership Council coordinates the efforts of hundreds of students, who volunteer their time to help Story County Habitat for Humanity build a house.
