And Many More: Happy 95th Birthday to Legendary Mike ‘Link’ Linkovich Archives

A legend on campus and in his profession turns 95 today.

For more than sixty years Mike Linkovich — known to nearly all as “Link” (though there was a time when Bowdoin athletes would call him “Big Daddy”; that’s a true story) — has been a fixture on campus.

Joining the College in 1954 as athletic trainer, Link was a member of the Bowdoin staff for 40 years, and still can be seen often in the athletic equipment room, at sporting events, and in the dining halls.

Link’s birthday will be celebrated at noon, February 2, 2017, in Daggett Lounge, Thorne Hall. Read more about Link.
