Capture1Even though Nile Kinnick was killed in action during World War II, he is still considered one of Iowa’s all time top athletes. His legend has continued and recently Kirkwood added two books about him to our collection. They are available at the Cedar Rapids branch, but can be sent to any Kirkwood location.
