1961 Minnesota Vikings
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
The Minnesota Vikings were the idea of a group of owners led by Bill Boyer, the son a Minnesota lumberjack. Another partner in the new team's ownership, Ole Haugsrud, had once owned the Duluth team of the early NFL. My ebook considers the Vikings founders, their early management and coaches and the first players drafted by Minnesota. Finally I describe in detail the highlights of the 1961 season.
