"Gould dressed casually. A dash of dowdiness became him well. Rolling socks and sagging tweeds, variegated shirts and flaming ties--all were harmonized in a far from ordinary mortal." [Carleton: The First Century, 1966] Within a year of Gould's arrival at Carleton, his taste for fanciful neckware--particularly in his favorite hue of solid red--had become associated with a new college tradition: Wild Tie Day, when male students attempted to outdo Gould, and one another, in the brilliancy of their cravats.
