George Stephens is still an enigma, even though it’s been almost 40 years since a group of Haverford students founded the George Stevins [sic] Memorial Association. Their quest was to gather enough information about him in order to understand this courageous Haverfordian. Here are some of the characteristics known to date through discovered artifacts: he was a little ungainly on the soccer field, his team having suffered defeat in Ethiopia when the ball dribbled past his left-leaning feet (see "Sinistericon" and his sneakers as evidence); he had little humor, as the well-known artist, Kevorkian, revealed in his portrait of Steyvens [sic]; he wrote his senior thesis on an unknowable topic, given that the 5" floppy on which it was presented can no longer be read; and he had a preference for large women (see Margaret Dufay’s toothbrush). Perhaps a visitor to the exhibit, which closes on March 15th, will discover the perfect artifact. We welcome any creative evidence that will fulfill the mission of the Jorge Esteban [sic] Memorial Association.
