David A. Field founded the University of Maryland Gymkana troupe in 1946. Gymkana is a gymnastics troupe whose members formally pledge to remain drug, tobacco, and alcohol free, and to promote that lifestyle to their audiences. This collection consists of five photographs of David Field, including two from Gymkana's 50th Anniversary Homeshow in 1996. Also included are three memorabilia items from the 50th Anniversary commemoration -- a Gymkana t-shirt, a patch, and the plaque presented to Field on that occasion.
