Announcement by John R. Nichols, resident counselor at the University of Oklahoma, explaining that "according to Sharanjit Singh Dhillonn," the "Maharaja of Florpur" was interested in seeing the life of a typical American university student, and would be visiting on October 29, 1955. Dhillonn often jokingly claimed to be a maharaja hailing from the nonexistent "Florpur" during his college years, dressing the part at costume parties and writing press releases announcing his travels to and from OU.
