The Ballad of the Monon Bell, which was originally written and recorded by DePauw University alumni in 1985, now sounds better than it has in years and has a new, updated video to accompany the song. A newly discovered stereo recording of Ballad -- written by Darel Lindquist '68 (lyrics) and Nancy Ford '57 (music) and arranged and sung by Jim Ibbotson '69 -- has been married with new photos from the annual football battle with Wabash College, as well as recently uncovered historic images and footage from the rivalry, which dates back to 1890.
