Article "Esau Honored in RC Chapel"

Description

This satirical April Fool's Day article describes a service held in honor of Esau Brooks, a caretaker and athletic trainer, at the Cannon Memorial Chapel in 1936. The article describes the ceremony, during which Brooks was honored with a rake and umbrella, "which prove invaluable to Esau in his work." Brooks worked at the University of Richmond from 1914 until his death in a fire in 1957, with the exception of World War I, where he served and received the French Croix de Guerre for battlefield action.
