Leonard Raffensperger - Later Life and Death

Later Life and Death

Raffensperger still had one year left on his contract. Iowa athletic director Paul Brechler only wanted to make a coaching change if he could find a "top man". He had targeted Forest Evashevski as that man. When Evashevski decided to take the Iowa job in 1952, Raffensperger was offered full salary for the final year of his contract and another position in the Iowa athletic department. Raffensperger accepted the offer, and he worked for the Iowa athletic department for over a decade until he decided to retire. Raffensperger died of cancer in Iowa City, Iowa on September 19, 1974 at age 70.

Famous quotes containing the words death and/or life:

    Families suffered badly under industrialization, but they survived, and the lives of men, women, and children improved. Children, once marginal and exploited figures, have moved to a position of greater protection and respect,... The historic decline in the overall death rates for children is an astonishing social fact, notwithstanding the disgraceful infant mortality figures for the poor and minorities. Like the decline in death from childbirth for women, this is a stunning achievement.
    Joseph Featherstone (20th century)

    It is not in the world of ideas that life is lived. Life is lived for better or worse in life, and to a man in life, his life can be no more absurd than it can be the opposite of absurd, whatever that opposite may be.
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)
