in Community/Sports

 WAUSAU — Are you ready for some football (history)?

Join the Marathon County Historical Society for “Capturing the Packers: 75 Years of Biever Family Photography,” another topic in its History Speaks series, at 2 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau. Speaker Matt Foss will highlight the work of Vernon Biever and his two sons, John and Jim, covering 75 years of Packers history.

Vernon Biever was the Packers’ team photographer for more than six decades, from 1946 to 2007. His career captured eras from Curly Lambeau to Vince Lombardi to Brett Favre. Sons John and Jim Biever followed in their father’s footsteps photographing football and the Packers.

Matt Foss is the assistant director at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau. He spent years working with the Biever family and curated the exhibition “Capturing the Packers: 75 Years of Biever Family Photography” for Art Start in Rhinelander and “The Man Behind the Camera: The Life and Work of Vernon Biever” at the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

There is no admission fee; however, donations are appreciated. Registration is not required.

For more information, call the Marathon County Historical Society at 715-842-5750.
