Manuel Ramirez

Octogenarian Manuel Ramirez emigrated with family from Mexico in the 1920s. Like many other Mexicans, they traveled first to Kansas City, Missouri, and then to the rich North Platte valley in Nebraska. Mr. Ramirez became a farmer and soon developed a reputation for raising some of the finest sugar beets in the region.
