Carl was born July 14, 1934, in Fargo, to Carl J. and Frances (Davenport) Mikula. He was raised in Casselton and graduated from high school there in 1952. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and proudly served his country during the Korean War. Upon his return from military service, he attended Valley City State College, where he also participated in sports and was on the schools golf team. During this time he married Joan M.

Upon his graduation, they moved to Amenia, where he taught, was the school's superintendent and coached basketball and football before the school's consolidation with Casselton.

After 25 years of service, Carl retired from Super Valu at which time he and Vi spent their winters at their Mission home and summers returning to Minnesota. Carl loved spending time with family and friends and sharing a good joke. He enjoyed many sports such as fishing and hunting, but will be remembered by most as a very avid golfer, participating in many golf matches and tournaments.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Carl's lifetime

In 1934, in the year that Carl Frances Mikula was born, on July 22nd, gangster John Dillinger was killed in Chicago. His gang had robbed banks and police stations, among other charges, and he was being hunted by J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI - although many in the public saw him as a "Robin Hood". A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

In 1947, he was just 13 years old when on April 15th, Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, playing first base. He was the first black man to play in the Major Leagues. Since the 1880's, professional baseball had been segregated and blacks played in the "Negro leagues". He went on to play for 10 years.

In 1950, he was 16 years old when in February, Joe McCarthy gave a speech alleging that he had a list of "members of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring" who worked in the State Department. He went on to chair a committee that investigated not only the State Department but also the administration of President Harry S. Truman, the Voice of America, and the U.S. Army for communist spies - until he was condemned by the U.S. Senate in 1954.

In 1967, by the time he was 33 years old, on November 7th, President Johnson signed legislation passed by Congress that created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), which would later become PBS and NPR. The legislation required CPB to operate with a "strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature".

In 1989, when he was 55 years old, on March 24th, the Exxon Valdez, an oil tanker, struck a reef in Alaska's Prince William Sound and oil began spilling out of the hold. The oil would eventually contaminate more than a thousand miles of coastline. It is estimated that over 10.8 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the Sound - killing 100,000 to 250,000 seabirds, over 2,800 sea otters, about 12 river otters, 300 harbor seals, 247 bald eagles, and 22 orcas - as well as an unknown number of salmon and herring.
