Some Observations from Visitors


Muhammad Ali spoke at Colby in 1970.

MUHAMMED ALI (Cassius Clay), former heavyweight boxing champion, March 21: “Miss America is always a blonde white girl … You folks don’t know even know yet what people on other planets look like, but you’ve already decided that Miss Universe is going to be white.”

The junior class sponsored Ali’s visit.
