William Boyd Mathews was born April 14, 1927, in rural Chase County, to William M. and Edna
Marie (Bremer) Mathews. In his young years he grew up in rural Chase County attending rural District #10 grade school. Boyd (as he was known) went on to graduate from Chase County High
School in 1945. After graduation Boyd was turned down from the serving during WWII because
of his hearing, and took an opportunity to attend Colorado A&M on a track scholarship. He
