Rex, King of DogsWKU Spirit (2014)
Rex, Coach E. A. Diddle's beloved Irish Setter, was WKU's unofficial athletic mascot and a familiar sight as he roamed the Hill. When Rex died in 1936, students mourned a "beloved fixture of the college." This article appeared as a "Moment in History" feature in WKU Spirit, Summer 2014, pp. 60-61.
