Title

President James A. Hilton receiving $1500 check from the Central Homecoming Committee, 1955

Description

James A. Hilton is seated at a table surrounded by five young men. They are: Front row (left to right): Unidentified committee member, James A. Holtin, unidentified committee member; Back row (left to right): Larry E. Barnes, Jan Rakow, Dr. Darrrel Metcafe. The Committee is presenting Dr. Hilton with a check for $1500.00 for Hilton's Dream Center which later became the Iowa State Center.
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.
