Powderhorn Park and Augsburg Stories Converge

A reader of recent posts on Murphy Square/Augsburg College and speed skating at Powderhorn Park put the two together and suggested a link to an article featuring U. S. Olympic speed skater Johnny Werket, who attended Augsburg.  From the article we learn that a third Minneapolis park also played a role in the story: Longfellow Field was Werket’s home park.

Thanks for the tip.
