Although it seems almost inconceivable today, the University of Nebraska was on the cutting edge of race questions when the football team fielded its first African-American player. That football star would later become a widely respected, almost revered physician in an out-state area where his and his fatherís families were isolated in the preponderantly Swedish community of Stromsburg in Polk County.


Just a good story, staged in my neck of the woods.
