About Jim Rice
Jim is a former history teacher and school superintendent who first learned about the Green Bay Packers as an eight-year old just before the 1961 Championship Game between the Packers and the New York Giants. When Jim attended college in Wisconsin at Marquette University his status as a huge Packer fan was eventually sealed! Since 2011, Jim has been researching and writing about Packers history. He has written three books on Packers history and another book on the NFL Championship Games before the Super Bowl era. During the football season, Jim speaks to groups throughout Southeastern Wisconsin about the 100-year history of the franchise.
