The November episode of “Nebraska Stories” features a scrapbooking Husker fan who has compiled 700 pounds of football memorabilia, a story about a famous David City artist who left behind a remarkable personal notebook and a trip to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego with the Cornhusker Marching Band. These unique Nebraska life stories and more air Sunday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. MT on NET1/HD.
This new “Nebraska Stories” broadcast introduces viewers to Steve Harley from Winnetoon, who started making three-ring binder scrapbooks documenting Husker football seasons in 1969. Each season’s book–he is currently working on his 43rd volume –weighs approximately 20 pounds and takes him 300 hours to complete.
Another segment takes a look at the lifelong correspondence from regional artist Dale Nichols from David City to his niece Ruth, to whom he was determined to leave his artistic legacy. Nichols, who painted in the style of Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton, once had a work hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art next to a Picasso.
