Sam Bice

Description

Seventeen year old Sam Bice lived with his family--and delivered the newspaper--in the Braeburn addition in 1972. He talks about what happened the night of the flood, the heavy death toll among his neighbors, and the odds things he found in the days following catastrophe.

Sam Bice was born in Chamberlain, South Dakota and moved to Rapid City in 1960 where he has resided since. He joined the family business where he was a water well and foundation contractor until his retirement.
