Mary Gonzalez told them she was the best candidate to represent them and El Paso voters agreed, but along the way, the 28-year-old doctoral student at the University of Texas at Austin broke her share of barriers.
Found this in my planner.
Jack Yoshihara was a member of the 1941 Oregon State College (later Oregon State University) Beaver football team. The Beavers qualified for the Rose Bowl that season, and after Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941, the game was shifted to Durham, North Carolina, due to concern of a possible attack.
Jack missed playing in the Rose Bowl because of travel restrictions for people of Japanese descent. He did eventually receive his Rose Bowl ring when this Beaver team was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
