Fall 2019: Some Little Giant Publishes Some Little Giants


Former Wabash athletic director, wrestling coach, and Wabash legend Max Servies ’58 returned to campus in September to celebrate the publication of his long-awaited Some Little Giants: A Brief Wabash College Athletics History, co-edited by David Phillips. The reception in Lilly Library was packed. 

“When Max began compiling this book more than 30 years ago, he knew there was so much more to athletics at Wabash than box scores,” writes Wabash Chief of Staff Jim Amidon ’87, who worked with Servies on the book and was director of sports information during Max’s tenure. “He felt the weight of history on his shoulders, and the amount of effort he put into this and the research he did, long before there was an internet, cannot be overstated. He was committed to getting our story told.”
