Edbert C. Buss, director of athletics and head of the Physical Education Dept. Coach Buss brought the Tigers through one of the most succesful seasons ever enjoyed here.
Charles W. Bachman, Assistant Athletic Coach and instructor of Physical Education is in a large measure responsible for the outcome of the past season.
Bourban P. Bondurant
Captain of the 1917 Old Gold Football Team.
Bondy is recognized by his men as a leader and his keen judgement on the gridiron had proven infallible in settling petty disputes and differences. He was in the fight every minute of each game breaking up the plays before they materialized.
This was his second year on the team and he was placed on the all-state team this year.

Joe, as student athletic manager has been of great service and assistance to each branch of athletics as he has been closely connected with them. Joe always has a word of encouragement for everyone and he has been of invaluable assistance to Coach Buss.

Most of these names, as you can tell, are nicknames probably given to them
by coaches and fellow players. I listed the names just how they are in the album,
your guess on their real names are as good as mine unless I spend hours trying to
match their football uniform picture to their class pictures.
The note under each person is as it is in the book except that I shortened the coaches listings a bit.
Each player has a picture next to him. For info on getting a scanned or photocopied copy of this or any page in the 1918 DePauw Mirage Yearbook contact me. Thank you for visiting!
