This image scanned from page 378 of the 1924 Arbutus Yearbook.

Whitlock was a former horse jockey who helped out with the IU athletic teams. In return, he was allowed to live in the old observatory that had one time been located on Dunn Meadow before it was moved to where Woodburn Hall is today (2013).

A page in the 1922 football manager's book (IU Archives accession number 2008/059) says about Whitlock, in full: "Bud appears upon the scene of action every day that the weather will permit and takes care of the footballs and equipment like an old hen takes care of her chickens. He has been doing this for years."
