Gwynn Wilson was the man who arranged one of college football’s most celebrated intersectional rivalries–the USC-Notre Dame series. Wilson also played instrumental roles in bringing the 1932 Summer Olympics to Los Angeles and opening Santa Anita Park in 1934, both at a time when the nation was suffering through the Depression.
