Before major league football and baseball came to Minnesota, speed skating drew large crowds to the rink at Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis. During the 1950s, Bartholomew won 14 national titles and was one of the first inductees into the Star Tribune's Minnesota Sports Hall of Fame. Bartholomew died in 2012 at the age of 92.
