MacNaughton Cup memories

MacNaughton Cup

(Excerpted from an email from President Glenn Mroz to alumni)

Our hockey team accomplished something that hasn’t been done since 1976. I was a graduate student here back then. Forty years ago. The MacNaughton Cup makes its way back home to the Copper Country this week. The Detroit Free Press tells us the 40-pound trophy was purchased by the president of Calumet and Hecla Mining Company James MacNaughton back in 1913. He paid $2,000 for the silver cup—and now it’s back where it belongs.


Were you a student at Tech the last time we had the MacNaughton Cup or just have a good hockey memory to share? Let us know at: Tech Alum.
