Zora Clevenger Rites Saturday
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Services for Zora G. Clevenger, 88, Indiana University athletic director emeritus and college football Hall of Fame member, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Allen Funeral Home.
Clevenger, known as "Mr. Indiana" in recognition of his services as athlete, coach and athletic director, was pronounced dead at Bloomington Hospital yesterday after collapsing in a Bloomington store.
A native of Muncie, Clevenger organized that city's first high school football team in 1897. He came to I.U. in 1900 where he starred four years in both football and baseball. He also was the only Hoosier to serve as captain of both teams.

In 1911, he became head coach of football, basketball and baseball at the University of Tennessee and had the distinction of producing Tennessee's first undefeated football team. In 1964, Tennessee brought him back as a guest for the Kentucky-Tennessee game in commemoration of the 1914 season.
After serving for short periods in the athletic departments of Kansas State and Missouri Universities. Clevenger returned to I.U. in 1923 as athletic director.
Under his 23-year administration, Hoosier teams that previously had won only three Big 10 championships, gained 32 team titles, six national collegiate crowns and two national Amateur Athletic Union championships.
He also was responsible for the hiring of such noted coaches as Everett Dean and Branch McCracken in basketball, E.C. Hayes in track, Billy Thom in wrestling and A.N. McMillin in football.
Two years ago, Clevenger became one of only two former I.U. players to be into the National Football Foundation's Hall of Fame. A recipient of I.U.'s Distinguished Alumnus Citation, he also was honored by the Lettermen's Association in 1963 b the founding of the Clevenger Award, given to alumni lettermen who have performed an outstanding service to the athletic program.
