The six women pictured here, in front of the Alumni Gymnasium, were all members of the 1963 Dickinson College cheer leading corps.  Patricia Anne Hitchens (front row center) was the captain of the Cheerleaders during the 1962-1963 school year.  In clockwise order around Hitchens, other members shown are Linda Ashcraft, J. Meyers, Nancy McAnewey, Judy Elder and Jill Toy.  Unlike the earlier days of the "College Noise," specialist cheer leading at Dickinson was now almost exclusively a female tradition.
