ThrowBack Thursday with celeb alum Eddie McClintock

A little bird—OK, it was Twitter—told us that celebrity alumnus Eddie McClintock (class of ’91) is returning to campus this Saturday, October 18, to serve as Master of Ceremonies of the kickoff gala for Rise. Shine. The Campaign for Wright State University.

McClintock is best known for playing Secret Service Agent Pete Lattimer on Syfy’s highly successful Warehouse 13. “Pete” even had several Wright State t-shirts; what a coincidence!

In honor of McClintock’s homecoming, we thought it would be fun to see if we could “find” him in the University Archives.

According to information from the gala invitation, McClintock graduated with a degree in communications studies in 1991 and was a member of the varsity wrestling team.

We did find his name and photos several times among our collection of wrestling team documents and photographs from the years 1986-87 and 1987-88.

Below are items from the 1986-1987 season:

Try finding him in this one, the 1987-1988 wrestling team photo, then check the caption.  (Click on the photo to view a larger version of it.)

And here are a few other items of interest, like team rosters and seasonal results (click on a thumbnail image to enlarge it):

We hope Mr. McClintock will see & enjoy this little trip down memory lane, and we hope the rest of you did as well! Welcome back, Eddie! We know you’ll be a great M.C. on Saturday, and thanks for all the Raider pride t-shirt love on Warehouse 13!

The above materials can be found in the University Archives under Athletics (series 02-07)–Publications & Publicity–Sports Events Information–Wrestling, 1986-1989.
