  1. Congrats to Joyce Chambers and the South Bend Progress Club for heading up the application and placement of this marker. It will be placed on the busiest pedestrian intersection in South Bend and sure to be seen by those visiting the College Football Hall of Fame and the South Bend Chocolate Cafe! Also nearby visitors will find the Studebaker National Museum – we invite everyone to take the Lincoln Highway to South Bend to see our new marker!
