OK-100 staff at Moravia bathtub races (1987)|
Moravia's famous bathtub races are a thing of the past but the memories live on with this picture from 1987 of Cortland's OK-100 crew. Pictured from left to right are Margo Seamans, a member of the sales department, and Diane Wade, a Moravia native herself, who can now be heard middays at Oldies 92.1 (WSEN).
The annual event paid tribute to Moravia's most famous resident, Millard Fillmore, who was well known for being the first President to have a bathtub in the White House. Not so say historians who have traced the urban legend back to an article written by H.L. Mencken in 1917.
