The idea for Father's Day is attributed to Sonora Dodd, who was raised by her father after her mother's death during childbirth. While listening to a sermon at church on Mother's Day, she thought about all her father had done for her and her siblings and decided fathers should have a day, too. Because Dodd's father was born in June, she encouraged churches in her area, Spokane, Wash., to honor fathers that month. The first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane in 1910.

The Story Behind Rocky the Bull

When the issue of a school mascot was first raised in 1961, "Rocky" the Bull was far from first choice. The process of choosing a mascot was apparently not a smooth one. University of South Florida Chickens, Roosters and Camels were all included for serious consideration. Even the Desert Rats, named after a group of men who played intramural sports and were the forerunners of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, was contemplated, but proved to be another failed attempt. Gerald Stack and Jack Boyd, members of USF's charter class, planted the seed for what later became the school mascot, the Brahman Bull.
