William "Bill" Pfeiff
William "Bill" Pfeiff was truly my "big brother" who functioned like my Guardian
Angle in Lincoln Nebraska during my early college years.
Bill played guard on the Cornhusker football team in 1937
He provided a place for me to live and helped me with needed employment for food and subsistence.
In fact with much encouragement he made it possible for me to work my way through my first two years of college
at the University of Nebraska.
During the years since then, he has remained in my corner, giving me encouragement and moral support
through thick and thin. I truly could not have made it through the many problems that came my way with out his
help and encouragement.
Bill was a natural born teacher, coach and leader of young men. In the Nebraska educational system
he has been recognized as a true professional and for his record of successes in the athletic.
Thanks, Bill !!

Bill's small home at 16th and Vine in Lincoln Nebr was home to several students like myself. As the house was situated
on the same street that the University's Frat Row was located, we put a sign out on the front reading, "Tap-A-Nu-Keg-A"
which turned more than a few heads!
