  • Article on Louis Zamperini

    In the Kappa Sigma quarterly. Go to page 25 to see the article. My own dad has written many articles for this random publication, including a great piece on the all-Kappa Sigma track and field team (led by Mel Patton, I think), which is no longer on their website. I don't know if my dad wrote this piece or not since they didn't mention who wrote it. The Caduceus seems to have gone downhill in recent years.

    That's quite a story. I remember seeing Louie at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Amazing that he is still alive today. I hope Ron Howard does make the movie. I'll see it.

      Zamperini

      A number of years ago Louis Zamperini visited the Armory Track and Field Center in NYC. He gave a speech, which I missed, but his autobiography "Devil at My Heels" was available. It is a great read about an amazing man.

        The book is a wonderful read! Pretty special guy! I to was at the Armory and am glad that I got the oppurtunity to shake his hand. A very amazing human being!
