Sagehens’ moment in the sun

Fifty years ago, a foursome from Pomona College competed on “GE College Bowl,” a TV quiz show based in NYC and hosted by Allen Ludden, and beat all comers. The college’s alumni magazine has a retrospective here. An excerpt:

“They returned home to campus acclaim, with hundreds gathered to watch as Pomona College President E. Wilson Lyon greeted them in a public ceremony … Pomona’s own press releases proudly noted that ours was the first team from beyond the Eastern Seaboard to win all five matches on the show.”
