Dale Orlando Peterson is from Warren, Minn. He was born Feb. 13, 1926, the only son of a piano tuner technician father and a stay at home mother.

He was crowned with a laurel wreath for winning a decathlon as a sophomore, the youngest winner of that olympic-level competition. A decathlon is “an athletic event taking place over two days, in which each competitor takes part in the same prescribed ten events (100-meter dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400-meter dash, 110-meter hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin, and 1,500-meter run).”
