John Steuart Curry stands next to an action painting of David N. Schreiner, an All-American end in 1942 who was killed in action on Okinawa in 1945, while serving as a lieutenant with the 6th Marines. Schreiner is depicted catching a forward pass near the goal line during a football game at Camp Randall. It was originally painted for Abbott Laboratories for use in a magazine they published.  Mr. Curry suggested that they present the painting to the University of Wisconsin-Madison athletic department. Schreiner's No. 80 was retired in 1945 and again in 2006 where it adorns the Camp Randall facade with 5 other football heroes.
