Corey Ford CC '23 wrote the lyrics to "Roar, Lion, Roar" and coined the name of the New Yorker 's mascot, Eustace Tilley, perhaps after one of his brothers in the now-defunct Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

"Roar, Lion, Roar" emerged from Ford's efforts on the Varsity Show. He co-wrote the 1923 performance, Half Moon Inn, and the fight song was taken from a number called "Bold Buccaneers", which Ford had developed with Roy Webb.
