The Last Appointment of Steve Prefontaine

On May 30, 1975, Steve Prefontaine cancelled his last haircut appointment at the Red Rooster Barbershop in Eugene, Oregon. He promised to come in the next day, but he died that night. The missed appointment may sound like a trivial fact that has little to do with running, but David E. Graf went to find out more by interviewing the shop's barber.
