Ray Chamberlin was officially honored at the Mishawaka High School Alumni Luncheon as Mishawaka’s “Poet Laureate” on Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
Ray grew up on Wenger Street in Mishawaka, one of ten children, and was greatly influenced by his father, George Chamberlin, who was both a poet and a painter. Ray was a Mishawaka mail carrier for 25 years and began getting some local renown when he wrote a poem in response to the silly song, “The Little Blue Nun,” which was written by an Alabama football fan in protest of Notre Dame winning the 1977 national championship.
