Neihardt Center Welcomes New Board Member


The Neihardt Foundation welcomes Pat Browning as a new board member. Pat and her husband, John, live on a farm south of Bancroft, where over the years they raised five children, cattle and generations of dogs and cats. Pat received an Education Specialist degree from Wayne State College, where she then taught psychology.

Earlier in her career she worked as a teacher/counselor at Walthill, where she had “the opportunity to learn more about Native American culture.” Pat first became acquaint- ed with the work of John G. Neihardt in the early 1970s through her neighbor, Irene Hammel. “Irene and my father-in-law remembered Neihardt as a common sight on the street in Bancroft, and I later saw old films showing him in front of the bank.”
