The Real Moonlight Graham: A Life Well Lived – Preview

An intriguing character in the classic film Field of Dreams, he was Archie “Moonlight” Graham, an accomplished athlete … as well as Archibald Graham, M.D., the beloved “Doc” in Chisholm, Minn., who collaborated with Mayo Clinic researchers in a landmark medical study.

This film shows both dimensions of a remarkable man — and how the bonds of professionalism and service linked community health care with a world-renowned medical center. Look for interviews, photos and historic films, many of which are presented in public for the first time.
