Ex-Viking Fox now in Oregon hall of fame

Dave Fox, a 1962 Coeur d'Alene High graduate, was member of the 1965-66 Oregon State men's basketball team which was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame earlier this week.

Fox, a senior on that Beavers squad, played basketball for Elmer Jordan at Coeur d'Alene and is the son of the late Dr. and Mrs. E.R.W. Fox.

Following his graduation from OSU, Fox spent more than 20 years in public education at the former Jackson High School in Portland, then for the Clackamas County Education service. He designed a special education program for the country for severely handicapped kids, something he says "was a wonderful experience." He and his wife, Carla, have sinced pursued common interests which include architecture and the arts. The couple now owns Fox Glassworks in Bend, Ore., and have been jewelers and sculptors.

Lead by head coach Paul Valenti, the 1965-66 OSU basketball team was one of the most successful in school history. The team finished 21-7 overall and won the Athletic Association of Western Universities (AAWU, a predecessor to the Pac-8 and Pac-10).
