Summary "For 39 seasons at four schools, Dr. Edward N. Anderson roamed the sidelines of college gridirons across America. This biography catalogues the life of that "good doctor" who became dean of America's college football coaches and was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame for lasting influence. In his young life as a star player, Anderson mastered the game as an All-American end under Notre Dame's legendary Knute Rockne. After entering the collegiate coaching ranks in 1922, he served as a head coach for all but four of the next 43 years. Simultaneously he devoted himself to the practice of medicine. On the eve of his retirement from college football in 1964, Dr. Anderson was the game's elder statesman. His football odyssey is chronicled in depth within these pages."--BOOK JACKET.
