Ken Nystrom to be inducted into Moose Lake Wall of Fame


January 16, 2020

Moose Lake High School will be inducting 1991 graduate Ken Nystrom into the Wall of Fame on Friday January 24, 2020 at 7:00 at the school between the girls’ junior varsity and varsity games. The public is invited to attend the ceremony and visit with Ken.

Ken Nystrom is a professor in the Department of Anthropology at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He graduated from Moose Lake High School in 1991 and attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Following college, he went to the University of New Mexico where he received his Ph.D. in biological anthropology. His research and training focuses on reconstructing human behavior in the past from skeletal remains. Over the years, this background has provided him the opportunity to travel to many different countries including Italy, Honduras, Greece, Greenland, the Canary Islands, Peru, Brazil, Chile, and Egypt. His research has covered many different topics, from examining the impact of imperial conquest in precontact Peru to the impact of manumission on population structure in historic New York. His most significant work looks at social inequality in the past and how this informs on social issues facing today’s society.

Moose Lake is proud to induct Ken into the diverse Wall of Fame members. The Wall of Fame qualifications are for the person to have been out of school at least 10 years past graduation or five years past retirement for a staff member. The honorees have been coaches, teachers, lawyers, civic leaders, artists, and academics. Among the honorees in the Wall of Fame are Robert Youso, Paulette Paulson, Triple Crown Winners, Richard Pionk, and Stan Dodge.
