Photograph, Kenneth Spencer in his football uniform, undated [circa 1916-1920]

Description

Kenneth’s lifelong love of sports began during his childhood. As a student at Pittsburg Normal High School (1916-1920), he excelled at football, basketball, and track. According to various biographical articles about Kenneth, a displaced vertebrae caused by a high school football injury ended his plan to play in college. Nonetheless, at KU Kenneth became a fan of the university’s football team. He also took up boxing – suffering two broken noses – and was a two-time heavyweight champion.
