Interview with Larry Whitfield

Larry Whitfield 1/8/2019

An oral interview with Larry Whitfield who played as a tackle during the 1940’s. The conversation with Larry was one of the most memorable I’ve had so far and it was fascinating to hear about Monroe back in the day. We covered topics ranging from high school days, life during World War II, and his memories on the gridiron.
