Saturday, Nov. 1 marks the 65th anniversary of the Ruth A. Wilcox Memorial Forensics Invitational and the fourth year of the O’Donnell Debate Tournament.
Every year, the event commemorates the late Ruth A. Wilcox, former drama and speech professor, and Dean of Women for the College. Wilcox also advised the student debate club. The debate is named after Drs. James and Mabry O’Donnell, both Marietta College emeriti professors who were strong supporters of the Forensics program.
