Longtime Gettysburg College Athletic Director Hen Bream is the subject of a new book by history Prof. Michael Birkner.
"For roughly half a century, the name Hen Bream was indelibly linked with Gettysburg College athletics," Birkner writes in Building Men: Hen Bream and Gettysburg College Athletics. "As a student in the 1920s, then during a long tenure as a coach and finally as Gettysburg's athletic director from 1953 to 1969, Bream contributed materially to Gettysburg's impressive record."
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences. With some 2,500 students, it is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
