Timeline Tuesday: Baseball in Early Lincoln

Edward Manley, a Chicago educator, was the son of Samuel Manley, one of the five men that composed the faculty of the University of Nebraska when classes first began in the fall of 1871. The father's health failed and he soon resigned. The Manley family lived in Lincoln only a few years when Edward was less than twelve years of age. He later recalled these years in a paper read January 25, 1932, before the Chicago Literary Club.
