I've been spending a great deal of time doing research and adding entries to the alumni obituary archives (published 1990 to present and pre-1990), as well as updating links and answering emails.
Tonight, I found time to add a post to the Madison Central High School History blog (a.k.a the All-Central blog) about the 1929-1930 football and basketball teams, whose members included Fred Miller, publisher of The Capital Times, and his twin brother, Frank Miller, a civil engineer whose Madison projects included the Camp Randall Shell and the Witte and Sellery Hall dormitory complex at the UW-Madison. The post is based on a letter written by Frederic "Bud" Rood that I found in the Custer files. Take some time to stop by the history blog and read this new post. You'll probably learn something new. For instance, did you know that Madison Central High School used to play its football games at Camp Randall field?
