Hunt, of Sigma Province
Succeeding the veteran A. B. Whitney
as the head man of Sigma province is

active service, Fred A. Hunt, Colby '13.
Brother Hunt is known to attendants of
the last several conventions as the livewire alumni club delegate from Toledo,
where he is a prominent insurance man
and a leader in civic affairs.
Brother Hunt was bom in Brooklyn,
New York, but was raised in Maine and
consequently has more of the characteristics of a New Englander than of a
At Colby College he was a star in both
football and basketball, and would have
been a standout in basketball too except
that the college had no team in that
sport. To fill in the gap Fred starred with,
a number of semi-pro basketball teams
around New England during the winter
After his graduation he gained a wide
reputation in New England as high

War I with a national guard unit as lieutenant and saw a good deal of service
in that conflict.
He moved to Toledo in 1926 and entered the insurance business and also
into the civic life of Toledo, where he
has distinguished himself in many fields.
He organized and coached the Sylvania
Merchants' football team and also
coached the 107th Cavalry eleven but

its leader ever since.
In November, 1941, Fred ran for the
Board of Education of Toledo and led
the field in the balloting. He is now an
active and constructive member of the
School Board with a long record ahead of
him if he chooses to stay.

Fred's activities in A are well
known. He has been a pillar of the
Toledo Alumni club for lo, these many

the boys in the chapters will make his
job both pleasant and easy. Fred is a
