Did you know?

After his football career, Alfred W. Klug became an automobile

dealer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  On June 13, 1957, he went to a bar

located in downtown Milwaukee.  Reports say he had been ejected

from the tavern by the bartender and a liquor salesman for "annoying

customers".  Soon after, he was found sitting slumped on a curb near

the tavern by an unnamed friend.  He was taken to County Emergency

Hospital where he died.  An autopsy showed that his death resulted

from a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.  We are unsure if anyone

was ever held accountable for his death.
