Thanks for sharing the Ron Evans memorabilia collection in the Oct. 21 issue of Flagpole. My jaw dropped when I saw the Hanna Batrite stamping logo plate. As a freshman at UGA in the early 1980s, I still recall the day when the plume of smoke rose from downtown, and we ran through campus to see what was burning. Twenty years later, I finally located a Hanna bat to call my own. Here’s to hoping that Evans’ collection inspires younger generations to acquire a unique bond to Athens.
