Friend of Ken Appelhans
Kenneth Appelhans was a "working-class intellectual who enjoyed learning science, art and music. From astrophysics to classical guitar to film, Ken had an insatiable thirst for knowledge and keen insights". He was also a savvy sail-boater and captained a boat on Lake Michigan, along with his brother Bill Appelhans and close friends Bill Mackovich, Doug "Dutch" Wagner and Scott Marshall, until the sport got "too expensive and out of reach for working-class people".
