1940s

Frank Adams, BCom’49, played soccer for UBC in 1942-1943 and was awarded a Big Block sweater. Over the years the sweater was lost. It occurred to his son, Rob, that Adams might enjoy having a Big Block sweater again, so he contacted the current UBC soccer coach, Mike Mosher. Very quickly a new sweater was provided. Adams enjoyed one year at UBC (1942 -1943) before going to war. After a couple of minor but spectacular crashes during pilot training in Canada, he went to Europe for a short time, and then the war was over. He returned to UBC and graduated with a degree in commerce. Adams turned 92 this summer and is still going strong and playing golf several times a week.
