Eveland says he was lead through life
Don Eveland is a member of one of Backus’ founding families, so it might be no surprise that he resides now in Backus, though that was not always his intention.
Eveland is a Backus native and number 12 of 14 siblings. He was an athletic Backus student and an all conference basketball player during his 1953 senior year.
“I thought it was a big deal, but it never did me any good,” he said.
