Inductees Probably the greatest track star in the history of Bradley University, Charles Lambert "Pat" Redd reached the pinnacle of his superb career with an outstanding performance in the 10th Olympiad.
Broad jumping 24 feet, 11 1/2 inches, he won a silver medal and could have placed higher if his leap of 26 feet, 3 1/2 inches was not disqualified because his toe touched the clay.
In 1932 he placed first in the college national meet in both the broad jump and the hop-step-jump (flow triple jump) and won the latter event in the Central AAU meet later that year. In that meet, he also placed second in the 100 yard dash which once again proved his versatility on the track.
This former All-American track star once held five Bradley track records simultaneously, including the 100 yard dash (9.9 seconds), the 120 yard high hurdles (15.3), the 220 low hurdles on a curve (25.0), the 220 low hurdles on a straightaway (23.9) and the broad jump. His 25 feet, 6 3/8 inch broad jump stands as the Bradley record today.

This year’s Neve Harms recipient is not only a gracious volunteer, but a born organizer. Glen is the head man of the crew that manages the Bradley basketball games. They have been so efficient that they have been asked to manage the Missouri Valley Tournament in St. Louis. He has been a coach, a manager, a Caterpillar worker, and a member of the Bradley Alumni Board in 1967-68. Glen’s organizing skills first blossomed when he volunteered to form a stats, program for "Ozzie" and then Joe Stowell. This job gradually grew in technology until it reached its present status as the best of the rest. Later, Glen was asked by Ron Ferguson to be in charge of the Bradley basketball games, where at 84, he still runs the show.
