| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Upon graduation, most of the Big Ten Medal of Honor winners have gone on to successful careers. Of the nine inaugural honorees in 1915, at least three became physicians: Matthew Winters, a football and baseball player at Indiana, Herman Von Lackum, a three-sport athlete in football, basketball and baseball at Iowa and Boles Rosenthal, who participated in football and track & field at Minnesota. Von Lackum went into orthopaedics, while Rosenthal took his degree to California where he spent time coaching football. In addition to his medical degree, Winters worked as a cryptographer during World War II.
