The first in-depth biography of the founder of the Packers and the man after whom the team’s stadium is still named. Curly Lambeau was a complex figure who grew his team from nothing but was ultimately forced out amid poor performances, financial woes, and indiscretions off the field. Zimmerman’s well-researched biography examines this multi-faceted character.
