Delta Tau Delta, 1969
Pay specific attention to the young man holding the dog on a leash, to the left of the woman in the center. This is Jim Whitehouse, ’69, and his dog Brutus. In 1968, Brutus became the first ever canine Homecoming Queen, much to the dismay of the young ladies in the running. The administration changed his title to that of Homecoming King.
