Old Prospector

July 20, 1965, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
In keeping with our summer theme this week, comes the story of this man, a real character who headed the Prospector Days parade in 1965.  Stories like his were at the heart of the city's earliest residents and we'd be hard pressed today to find someone with such a history to speak of.  Seems like in the past, the town was rife with stories like his, of hardscrabble individuals who excelled in life as they overcame overwhelming obstacles in their way.
