Old School Purdue Photos Featuring Bob Griese, Gus Grissom, & More

New, 6 comments

A reader recently sent me some great old Purdue photos.

I love the community that we have here at Hammer & Rails. It has led to a number of very cool things over the years led by the things I have been sent by readers. This past week a reader came across some great old-school press photos involving Purdue personalities. Let's step through them, shall we?
