Life Histories

In this exhibit, you'll find essays by Fresno State undergraduate students and Claremont Graduate University MA and PhD students that closely follow individuals throghout their life. Collectively, the essays here document how the game has shaped and transformed the lives of folks who arrived and settled in Fresno as well as their own impact on the game and region. 

These essays are primarly based on The Other Football archive and we encourage folks to explore the photographs, newspaper articles, and in some cases, oral histories that we used to write these stories. Lastly, the archive is much more expansive and representative that this small exhibit, so look through collections and items to get a better sense of depth and richness of The Other Football archive.
