Henrietta Baldwin, widow of the late Martin S. “Marty” Baldwin, flanked by then-Stroudsburg High School athletic director Wayne Hulsizer and East Stroudsburg counterpart Jack Kist, is shown in 1974 (right) holding the Little Brown Jug. The trophy had been recently refurbished.
Marty, who died in August ’74, originally donated the trophy that is awarded to the winner of the annual Stroudsburg-East Stroudsburg South football game.
To be able to revamp the Little Brown Jug, varsity clubs members at each of the schools raised funds, enabling a large pedestal to be added to the trophy. The longer stand would offer space for additional engraving of the winners’ names.
The refurbished Jug was rededicated in Marty’s memory during halftime of the 1974 Battle of the Boros.
Marty, who was the founder of Olympic Athletic Equipment Reconditioning Co. in East Stroudsburg, was also the donor of the Old Oaken Bucket trophy for the winner of the traditional football game between Pleasant Valley and Pocono Mountain East high schools.
