Raise the Roof, Part 2

I have come across a great new series of photos of the storm which tore part of Borchert Field's roof off during a game in 1944. The original post has been updated.

  1. These photos are just utterly amazing. I am curious about the injured people who were hit by the beam and wonder if they might still be living to this day. It would be quite a story to be able to interview them. I would imagine one would need access to hospital records. I've never seen these photos and I didn't realize the truly extraordinary impact of this devastating storm. Thank you for posting it, just unbelievable that no one was killed.
