Laurence H. White Reminiscences


Creator: Laurence H. White
Subjects: Students
Description: The reminiscences include a story about the football game between the Great Lakes and Michigan State during World War II. The MSC coach claimed he would walk on water if the Spartans won the game. After Michigan State won, he was forced to make an attempt at his promise.

Also included are reminiscences on canoeing on the Red Cedar River and crossing the Red Cedar River by climbing across using a rope.

The other reminiscence describes the June 7, 1937 Lansing Labor Union attempt to close businesses and companies in order to have a “Labor Holiday.” Within the description it discusses how Michigan State Students attempted to stop the union from shutting down business in the East Lansing area and mentions the eventual intervention of the Michigan State Police.
