Dedication of the new [Ocean Springs, Mississippi] athletic field occurred at the Homecoming Game
played during the evening of November 24, 1949. At a later date, bronze plaque was placed at the
northeast corner of the field, which reads:
November 24, 1949
Dedicated to the development of that spirit of fair play which is essential to the preservation of real
freedom. Because the life of Albert C. Gottsche so truly portrayed the spirit of fair play. And because
Arthur Hunt, Mark Seymour, and Eugene White made the supreme sacrifice in World War II that
freedom might be preserved. Their names are inscribed hereon to serve as an inspiration to our
future citizens. With special appreciation to W.H. “Cal” Calhoun.
