Hugh Troy

Hugh Troy Junior is a now-legendary prankster from Cornell University. The son of a professor, Troy attended from 1922 to 1927. Some of the practical jokes he pulled are still talked about, including using a wastebasket made from a rhinoceros foot to make what appeared to be rhinoceros tracks across campus, going to the lake which was the source of drinking water for the area. Reportedly, many people stopped drinking the water.
