Schultz to speak at First Presbyterian
Donald Schultz of Melrose, Fla., will be the featured speaker at the First Presbyterian Church, 306 E. Aber Ave., at 11 a.m. Sunday. Schultz, the son of Presbyterian missionaries to the leper colonies, was born in India in 1932. At the age of 10, with World War II threatening their existence, the Schultz family sailed across two oceans to New York City, evading Nazi U-boats along the way.
After graduating from Colorado State University, his professional football career was cut short by a knee injury that altered his course in life. He returned to graduate school, became an agricultural specialist, and lived and worked in a number of foreign countries.
Schultz crossed paths with Earl Page and Leon Cooper while working summer stints at Carlsbad Caverns in the mid-1950s.
All are invited to the presentation.
