Description

This article describes the continuing service of Esau Brooks, a trainer at the University of Richmond. Brooks began his work at the University in 1914, only leaving for military service in World War I. Brooks eliminated a "German machine gun next" while on patrol in the Argonne Forest, earning himself the Croix de Guerre. Brooks describes his pride for the college teams, changes to the University campus, building of new facilities, comings and goings of students, and still maintaining the winning spirit of the sports teams.
