Forrester decision to play five black players came at the height of racial insensitivity in the mid to late 1950s and was a full decade before Texas Western (now UTEP) started five black players in what is now the NCAA Division I national championship game. A movie was made about that Texas Western team, but outside of Quincy, only a handful of people to this day realize history was first made in West Central Illinois.Helping keep Forrester memory alive is a book written by his son, Gary Forrester, 64, entitled "Blaw Hunter, Ralph Lauren Polo T Shirt Uk

Blaw Thy Horn." The work is a memoir and historical commentary on the lives of his parents, Harry and Rose, and what impacted the family during their stays in various parts of West Central, central and southern Illinois."The book project started out initially as a family affair," Gary Forrester, one of Harry and Rose five children, said. "I wanted to write a brief Polo Ralph Lauren T Shirts Women's

recollection about the 1940s and 1950s for my younger brother and sister, who were born in the 1960s. The two younger ones didn really know about what their parents had achieved in the 1940s and 1950s, except through scrapbooks and tales, and I had a pretty good memory of things."But the book soon expanded beyond its original idea, because I needed to explain, or at least to speculate, about why people did certain things and what was the source of their character. This got me going back in time and also behind the scenes that were locked in my memory."Gary Forrester, who now lives in New Zealand, was 10 years old when his parents moved from Quincy. After leaving Quincy, Harry Forrester taught at Tuscola High School, was a principal at Pesotum Grade School and was a physical education teacher in Champaign. He was inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1982. He died in 2008."I had a lot of friends at the old St. Francis school Eddie Berry, Germaine Dixon, Mike Peters, Joey Sohn, Jackie Leggatt, Michael Hutmacher, the Awerkamps, Barb Fisher, Dickie Schonhoff, Johnny Rapp, many others," Gary Forrester said. "I haven seen any of those people for more than 50 years, but I remember them well when they were kids like me."Gary Forrester says it surprises him that his dad is still well remembered in the Quincy area."If only because it was so long ago, and he was not a self promoter by any stretch of the imagination," he said. "Also, his time there was so short. But those teams did achieve a great deal in a short span of time, not just breaking the color barrier but also with excellent records."The most gratifying part of writing the book was the set of discoveries and insights acquired along the way. Things I just Ralph Lauren Black Label Polo Shirt didn know, or just didn understand, that never would have been realized if I hadn been trying to put pen to paper to tell things accurately."Forrester and his family moved to New Zealand in 2006.
