Field Hockey at UC in 1955

Julia Langsam, wife of past University of Cincinnati president Walter Langsam, ceremonially opened the 1955 intramural field hockey season by dropping the first ball. No slouch at sports, UC's former first lady played field hockey as a Cornell coed. Field hockey eventually became one of six varsity sports when women's intercollegiate athletics debuted at UC in 1971. If anyone can identify the two players, please let us know at 513-556-5215 or magazine@uc.edu.
