March 7, 1964: KSU vs. MU: The game program

They don't offer programs now like they did back then.

For 25 cents you got a 12 page document on slick, thick paper that was custom designed for the specific game you were attending.

Below is the complete program for the KSU vs. Missouri game on March 7th, 1964. KSU came into the game with a 21 game winning streak over MU. Led by All B8 forward Willie Murrell, the Cats won the B8 race and made it to the Final Four of the NCAA tourney by defeating 5th ranked Wichita State - and were never ranked.

The MU game was also senior night for five players. K-State won 88-68.

This is the most remarkable page, in a way: an intelligently written report of the upcoming game - no useless stats like those that dominate the typical report now.

Page 10: 6-8 Senior forward Joe Gottfrid

Joe was a favorite of mine, he was also the lay assistant at my church, 1st Lutheran. I always wanted to have him play more, but he was a reserve who did not see much action.
