The Heisman and Hinsdale

Jay and Philomela Berwanger at home in Hinsdale, Ill., in 1951.
Jay Berwanger, winner of the first Heisman Trophy, was a long-time resident of Hinsdale, Ill., a western suburb of Chicago. In his later years, he resided in nearby Oak Brook.

The folks at the Hinsdale Public Library have invited me to present my slideshow on Berwanger's life at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Copies of First Heisman: The Life of Jay Berwanger will be available for sales and signing.

The presentation is free, but the library asks for RSVPs. 

If you live in the Chicago area, I hope you'll stop by for the hour-long
