"Wednesday a junior came to me, and told me I was to be hazed as I left the Opera House Friday night"
- Richard H. Davis
About this Quote
This quote suggests that Richard H. Davis was going to be the victim of a hazing ritual. The reality that the person who informed him of this was a junior indicates that the hazing was likely to be part of a school or college tradition. It is most likely that the hazing was to take place as Davis left the Opera House on Friday night, recommending that the hazing was to be a public event. This could be seen as a kind of embarrassment, as it would be witnessed by lots of people. It is possible that the hazing was a form of initiation into a group or society, or a way of penalizing Davis for some perceived incorrect. Whatever the reason, it is clear that Davis was not looking forward to the event.
