University of Michigan football coach, Fielding Yost examines the foot of a player as two men look on. "In his 25 years as head coach of the Wolverines, Yost's accomplishments rank among the most legendary in collegiate football history. Beginning with his inaugural club of 1901, Yost led the Michigan football program on an unprecedented victory run over a five year period ... Along with his accomplishments as the head football coach, Yost served as Michigan's Director of Athletics from 1921-41. For his leadership of the athletic department, Yost is viewed by many as the consummate pioneer and visionary of the field," from the Bentley Historical Library's website.
