'Part of legacy involves Beloit'

Print Article

It was several months ago when I happened to turn on the radio to chapter a day, and the reading was from a book called "Little Hawk Lone Wolf" by the late Raymond Kaquatosh. I started listening closely because the book sounded like fiction at first. Then I realized it was an autobiographical work, and honestly put.

As it turns out, the author, who was born on the Menominee Reservation in northern Wisconsin, eventually came to the city of Beloit, to work at Fairbanks Morse, and also as a route salesman for Omar Baking Company in the city.

Due to the author's connection with Beloit, we have asked for the local library to obtain this book, and they now have a copy. I suggest that everyone read this truly wonderful story of a man of great character and how he dealt with the difficulties of life. We are fortunate that part of his legacy involves the city of Beloit.
