Bronko Nagurski Citizen Now

Associated Press – December 12, 1938

INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. – Bronko Nagurski, the 230-pound former Minnesota All-America fullback, since turned wrestler, today became an American citizen.

The Big Bronk had spent all but a few weeks of his life in the United States, but the fact he was born just across the Canadian border near Rainy River barred him from enjoying privileges which the Bronk decided he could not do without.

He received his final papers today.
