Tucker R. Pope '14, Gettysburg College

Tucker is a junior studying Political Science and English. Hailing from conservative Simsbury, Connecticut, he hopes his writing style doesn’t offend his mother too much. He serves as the Chief Justice of the Inter-Fraternity Council and as Rush Chair of Alpha Chi Rho Fraternity. He someday hopes to join the military and eventually work for political campaigns or become president, whichever comes first.


The Mercury is a student-run art and literary magazine released each April. It has been published annually since 1899 at Gettysburg College. All students of the College are invited to participate on the staff and to submit their work for possible publication. Editors are elected annually by the entire staff. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the fall and early spring semesters and are reviewed and chosen anonymously by the staff.
