Ade Schwammel Collection, 1931-2005

Biographical Note

Ade Schwammel attended Oregon State College during the 1930/31 through 1933/34 academic years and was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. He played on the 1931-1933 football teams and was chosen as an All-American at tackle for the 1933 season. The 1933 team was 6-2-2, including a victory over eastern power Fordham and a 0-0 tie with defending Pacific Coast champion, University of Southern California (USC). The team played the entire USC game without a substitution which ended USC's 26-game winning streak and earned the Beavers national recognition as the "Ironmen." Schwammel played professional football for the Green Bay Packers in 1934-37 and 1943-44.
