           Presidents of the Indianapolis Association of Wabash Men
The term Indianapolis Association of Wabash Men probably came into being in the nineteenth
century. Records of the IAWM are not the best. Clarence Merrill was president in 1924. Current
records do not show a president until 1968. Starting for a few years in 1968, the term of the IAWM
president was not a calendar year. At least since 1975, the term has been a calendar year, January
through December.

                                 IAWM Scholar-Athlete Awards
The IAWM has long given a scholar-athlete award, sometimes called a student-athlete award, to
the senior who has best demonstrated the combination of scholarship and athletics. As typical, the
record-keeping of the IAWM has not been the best, and piecing the winners is a work in progress
The award is a cash award and a plaque. The list below starts with 1983, but the award was given
for several years before then. This list will be updated.

                                              The Monon Bell Stag
In 1965, the men of DePauw and Wabash began to gather on the Thursday before the Monon Bell
Game to celebrate their friendly and beloved rivalry. They made new friends and solidified old
friendships. Over the years, men of both schools anxiously awaited the hilarious wit of Tommy
Mont, DePauw's revered football coach, and the wondrous magic tricks of Thad Seymour, Wabash's
president. The crowd consisted of trustees, presidents, football coaches, faculty, and alumni,
young and old. Each school put forth a roaster to add to the merriment and good will. Roasters
have included Andy Paine (DePauw), Bob Bottoms (DePauw), Phil Eskew (DePauw), Steve Goldsmith
(Wabash), Dean Ben Rogge (Wabash), Bill Placher (Wabash), Vic Powell (Wabash), and an array of
other faculty and alumni. The Stag stopped after 1992. The men of the two schools desired to
return to the good old days and revived the stag in 2001.

                                                  Wabash Roasters
The following list contains the men who have honored Wabash men by roasting the Dannies since
1965. The list will be updated to fill in for the missing years starting with 1965.

*No Stag was held because the Dannies were wusses. The IAWM carried on with a Monon Bell celebration and roasted the Dannies in
their absence.

In 1981, the schools began to honor a Man of the Year, alternating between schools. Upon
restarting the stag in 2001, the schools began to honor distinguished alumni, with Wabash honoring
a DePauw alumnus each year and DePauw honoring a Wabash alumnus each year. The award is now
called the Spirit of the Monon Bell Award. Generally, the recipient is an alumnus who has done well
in his profession and has given back to the community, bringing credit to his alma mater and to the
liberal arts.
