I am collecting newspaper articles about my mother’s uncles, who played football at Mizzou in the 1910s and 1920s. The stories make quite a picture of their college careers, and later stories about their service in WWI — before the US entered the war — have added to what we know about their lives.
Nice to learn old news.
