The Hunt for Schiller
The odd Carleton mania for stealing and periodically displaying a plaster bust of the German poet seems to date from about 1957. Schiller has been shattered several times, glued back together at least twice, and replaced with a new replica on occasion, but the tradition lives on. The most celebrated of Schiller's appearances was at the 1962 Homecoming game, when he was dangled by a cable from a helicopter. During the past year, Schiller has also appeared on the Colbert Report and Desperate Housewives.
