"Buckeyes Following the North Star"
O-H-I-O taken at Quality Inn and Suites Airport, Anchorage, Alaska. From left to right: "O" Tom "Wildman" Wirtanen (OSU '74), an Attorney and folksinger in Lowell, MA; "H" a tourist from the "other OSU" in Oregon that volunteered for the shot but chose to remain anonymous; "I" Big Mike the hotel manager, originally from Cincinnati, Ohio; and "O" James G. Foradas (OSU '83, '85' '94), a mudlogging geologist with Canrig. Wirtanen and Foradas both found out they were Buckeye Alums in this lobby during a discussion about physics. This led to them finding out they were both introduced to geology by Prof. Jim Collinson. The picture took four days to set up because the hotel lobby is always busy when the salmon are running.
