Sigurd D. Medhus Papers, 1947-1949

Scope and Content Note

The Sigurd D. Medhus Papers consist of materials generated and assembled by Dewey Medhus during his student years at Oregon State College documenting his membership in the Delta Upsilon fraternity; his activities as a yell leader and yell king; and his attendance at the Air Force ROTC summer camp at Hamilton Air Force Base in 1949. The collection includes scrapbook pages with photographs and newspaper clippings; loose photographs; a yearbook from the 1949 ROTC summer camp; and a felt Oregon State pennant. The scrapbook pages include photographs of Delta Upsilon members in front of the fraternity house and a group of the fraternity members participating in the Interfraternity Sing. Newspaper clippings and photographs document Medhus' antics as a yell leader and yell king as well as other members of the rally squad, including Ray Staub and John Supple.

The collection includes a professional quality photograph from the 1949 ROTC Summer Camp; 22 snapshots of Medhus and his fellow cadets participating in training and recreational activities; and The Cadet, a yearbook for the Fourth Air Force Summer ROTC Camp held at Hamilton Air Force Base (California) in 1949.
