Edward Evans

Edward was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993. His citation is copied below:

Washington College experienced a great deal of success in athletics when Ed Evans was on campus.

In a time when capable students competed in more than one varsity sport, Evans was a standout in three – football, basketball, and baseball. In four years of football, he was an outstanding halfback and played on the undefeated team of 1934. In basketball, he was used as a forward and center for three years. But it was probably in baseball that Evans played his best for the College. He was an outstanding pitcher – and when he was not on the mound, he played an infield position, mostly at first base. During his four-year tenure on the baseball squad, Washington College won three state championships. His pitching and hitting records indicate he contributed significantly to this success.

Ed also was active in campus life. He was a member of the Varsity Club for four years, acting as president his senior year. He also was vice president of his senior class.

A successful businessman, Ed was president of the Cambridge Wirecloth Company and served as president of the Farmers & Merchants Bank in Cambridge. He was a member of the Washington College Board of Visitors and Governors between 1971 and 1977. He also served on the Boards of the Delmarva Boy Scouts Council, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and the Maryland Manufacturers Association. A Past Master of the Masons, Ed died on September 22, 1982.

Washington College considers it an honor to induct Edward Nathaniel Evans into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this date of Saturday, October 2, 1993.
