Roy and Ray

bandagsdw

Roy Carver owned a big tire retreading outfit over on the Mississippi.

The quintessential collegiate donor, he agreed to build a spiffy new field house for the basketball team. The U would call it, “Carver Arena.”

The newspaper with headline, “Carver Donates Millions to UI,” was tacked to the Workshop bulletin board. Under it, somebody penciled in with Sharpie, “Atta Boy, Ray.”

Happy belated birthday, Mr. Carver.
