This month we have an exhibit of Detroit Tigers memorabilia that has been donated to the College by alumnus S. Gary Spicer. The collection contains many photos, posters, balls and bats that have been autographed by legendary Tigers including Alan Trammell, Kirk Gibson, broadcaster Ernie Harwell and others.
We are also happy to host a lecture in our Heritage Room by Mr. Spicer at 7:30pm on Wednesday, Feb. 22. He will speak about his career working with professional athletes. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session.
Mr. Spicer has served as corporate legal counsel for a number of professional athletes and entertainers. He served as an at-large member of the Adrian College Board of Trustees from 1982 through 1994.
He was a member of the following committees during his tenure on the board:
Academic Affairs Committee, 1982-1994
Institutional Advancement Committee, 1982-1994
Finance Committee, 1982-1987
Strategic Planning Committee, 1987-1992
Adrian College awarded Mr. Spicer an honorary Doctor of Laws degree in 2002. He was inducted into the Adrian College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1996.
In total, there are five full cases of Tigers memorabilia. Stop by and see this impressive collection. It’s only a few short weeks until spring training 2012 and another great chance for a Tigers World Series run!
The exhibit is open during regular library hours through February.
