Title

Drake Relays, 1955, Wes Santee

Description

Fred Dwyer gets a kiss from Relays Queen Angie Branch while Wes Santee looks on. Santee and Dwyer both raced in the Invitational Mile Run, but Santee won the event with a time of 4:08.4. This was a disappointment as Relays organizers and the crowd had hoped Santee would break the four minute mile barrier. Dwyer was the national outdoor mile champion in 1954.
