the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library on Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 at 5:00 pm as we welcome home Kim Clodfelter, author of the new book, Cloddy: Coach Dwane “Cloddy” Clodfelter, a
Pioneer in the Integration of NCAA College Basketball.

former men’s basketball coach at the University of South Dakota. Coach
Clodfelter was a pioneer in the integration of college basketball during the
50’s and 60’s.
beginnings, Cloddy grew up in a small town in South Dakota during the Great
Depression. After graduating from Woonsocket High School in 1936, he earned a
two-year teaching degree at Southern Teachers College and then began a
forty-five-year teaching and coaching career. Cloddy became the men’s
basketball coach at USD in 1954. At that time, college basketball was not fully
integrated. In Cloddy’s first year as men’s basketball coach, he recruited two
black brothers from Brooklyn, New York. For the next thirteen years, he
continued to recruit minority athletes and, along the way, met with stiff resistance.
Cloddy is a testament to hard work,
courage, and loyalty.
Kim Clodfelter grew up right here in Vermillion and is a graduate of USD. Learn more about him on his website at kimclodfelter.com.
