CHAPTER 339 - STATE OF DELAWARE - EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, the life of Knute Rockne should be an inspiration to every American boy. Born in Norway, he was brought to this country when five years of age. His coaching exploits made him famous to the general public, and he won the respect and admiration of his friends because of his knowledge of youth, and
WHEREAS, Knute Rockne made character contagious—more widely contagious probably, than any man of our day. He taught by example as well as by word that sincere leadership is difficult because an honest leader must forget himself and his personal ambitions for the good of the greatest number, and
WHEREAS, Knute Rockne is gone but his wonderful memories will live on forever to encourage American youth,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of
SEPTEMBER 29 to OCTOBER 5 as
KNUTE ROCKNE WEEK
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand, and caused the Great Seal of this State to be hereunto affixed this twenty-eighth day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand, nine hundred and forty, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and sixty-fifth.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN
JOSIAH MARVEL, JR., Secretary of State.
