Bob Hope and Patrician Price

Sponsored by the campus Major Events Council, Bob Hope performed at Halenbeck Hall on December 1, 1976. Joined by singer Patrician Price, Hope received a standing ovation from the 3500 spectators as the show began. Hope sang songs, including "Smoke Gets in My Eyes" and "Thanks for the Memories" and performed in a comedy sketch. Hope told many jokes, targeting current US president Gerald Ford, US president-elect Jimmy Carter, and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton. The biggest cheer was when he offered Price his lapel to sniff and quipped "dig that, that's an afternoon at Landy's Packing," a meat processing plant south of campus.
