Bradley, Butch and Haarlow.

Before the present weekend fully gets underway, I wanted to share with you another two dollar eBay steal that arrived in the mail last night. I've noticed more and more newspapers are selling off photographs from their archives and one such image is the above shot of Bill Bradley, Butch van Breda Kolff and Bob Haarlow '66.

Might frame it now that it is scanned. More information after the jump.

As the text on the back informs, Bradley was the outgoing captain of the Tigers and Haarlow was taking his place, one of three brothers who suited up for the team between 1961 and 1968.

The picture comes from May of '65 and was taken by Alan W. Richards.

Confirming the spelling of Haarlow's last name led me to this 1965 Life Magazine profile of Bradley I am confident you'll enjoy.

If I remember correctly (not always at this age!), I included an original of that Life Magazine article in the box of Bradley memorabilia from my school days that I delivered to you about a year ago. If you haven't had a chance to go through that stuff, you may find a few other pieces of interest. (Of course, you may find some junk, too, which you are free to trash). I am very happy that you are the steward of Princeton B-Ball history.

John, I believe you are right. Properly displaying what you were kind enough to provide (I've only gone through one of the two boxes and not as in-depth there as I would have liked) is on my agenda for the summer!

Sadly, this falls into the be-careful-what-you-wish-for category. After Bradley left following the Final Four, the team spent an entire year waiting for him, finishing 9-5 in the league (losing to five different teams) and 16-7 overall in 1966. The NEXT year, adding only Chris Thomforde '69, the same team (including Bob Haarlow's brother John '68 and Gary Walters '67), seemingly tired of waiting, was fifth in the country.

Don't forget Ed Hummer, Ian's father, who was an integral part of all three of those teams.
