Lost and Found

On a college campus as lively as Kenyon's, it’s only natural that some things should go missing — and on the flipside, be discovered in unexpected places. Here’s a highlight reel of the season’s lost and found, sourced from campus listservs.

Two interlocking gold rings found in Chalmers. Said the finder: "XO + I like your style."

A TI-89 calculator. Mislaid during finals week, with an exam the next day. Good enough incentive for anyone to offer a $20 finder’s fee.

A "magical device" was left in the Student Accessibility and Support Services suite in Chalmers Library. The staff member who found the item asked the owner to reach out with a description to claim it. Whether it was an artifact imbued with rare mythic properties or merely a Magic 8 Ball, that’s between the owner and the staff member.

A K-Card. "I have managed to lose my K-Card on the first day of my last semester at Kenyon," said the owner, who later retraced their steps to successfully retrieve it.

Paint. Gund Gallery is no stranger to hosting a variety of this artistic supply within its walls, though they’re typically seen rendered onto canvas rather than still in the container. The finder of this oil paint (a yellow ochre hue) dropped it off at the front desk, mercifully unopened.

A library paper cutter (green). Whoever "borrowed" the cutter for any mysterious slicing and dicing needs is encouraged to return it to the circulation desk at their earliest convenience.

Alexander J. Franz trained for submarine command. “I spent three months in D.C. brushing up on nuclear reactor operations, during which the highlight was hanging out with Eric B. and Emily R. Kahn and their two awesome kiddos. I then spent two months honing tactical and weapons skills in Hawaii at the Submarine Command Course. Finally, I spent a couple weeks at headquarters learning who’s who and how the machine works. After six months, it was great to be back home in San Diego with Erin N. Franz ’06 and our three kids.” In December, the Franzes moved to Guam. AJ takes command of the attack submarine USS Jefferson City this spring.


Aaron B. Webber found “the love of his life and married him” after nine years in England. “Now John ‘Mac’ MacLeod and I live happily in Exeter with our two cats. Highland wedding to follow!”
