Iowa's Greatest Hero

An article written by Ambassador Quinn in the Iowa Cubs Yearbook about Dr. Borlaug ending baseball's longest curse. Ambassador Quinn writes about Borlaug's ambition to play professional baseball after being inspired by the Chicago Cubs in the 1908 World Series. Ambassador Quinn notes that Dr. Borlaug was more interested in the science classes at the University of Minnesota and the Cubs' loss was humanity's gain due to Dr. Borlaug's work with plant pathology.
