50 Years Ago

July 1969

Leo H. Burger, legendary Iola High School and junior college coach and teacher, died last night of a heart attack while fishing. Burger coached the only two league championship teams IHS had had, the 1947 football team and the 1948 basketball team. He came to Iola in 1940 and coached until the 1953-54 school year. Mr. Burger was then made athletic director of the school system and served in this capacity until his death.
