KGOU Readers Club: Jim Thorpe - World's Greatest Athlete

Jim Thorpe: World’s Greatest Athlete was first published nearly half a century ago, from author Robert Wheeler, but has recently been updated with a new preface from Wheeler and Dr. Florence Ridlon. 50 years is a long time, and more information has surfaced since the original publication. Wheeler and Ridlon join KGOU managing editor Logan Layden to talk about Jim Thorpe and what they’ve learned since 1975.

Logan Layden is a reporter and managing editor for StateImpact Oklahoma. Logan spent six years as a reporter with StateImpact from 2011 to 2017.
