Back to Digital Collections A-Z
Collection contains photocopied news clippings and mementos gathered by Alf Engen's mother concerning Engen's international Nordic and Alpine skiing careers. Some correspondence and certificates are also included. There are nine scrapbooks in the collection that cover his athletic career in his native Norway, as a champion soccer player and ski jumper, and as a United States, Olympic, and world champion ski jumper. The materials within each scrapbook is organized chronologically, though several of the books overlap the same time period and are similar in content.
