Kenneth Wayne Swigert attended his first year of college at Ball State Teachers College in Muncie, IN. His second year he attended Purdue University at Lafayette, IN. He was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. After that year and during the Great Depression he dropped out of college due to lack of money. His old basketball coach, Louie Means, who he stayed in contact with, was coaching at East High School in Green Bay, WI, and told him that if he moved to Green Bay he could find work and also play basketball in a city industrial league. In 1932 Kenneth moved from Indiana to Green Bay, WI, living with Clarence and Emily Gille at 1408 Elm Street. He started working for the Shefford Cheese Company as a laborer dumping cream. He worked his way up to the position of personnel manager and stayed with them until they were bought by Standard Brands Company and the company was moved to Chicago about 1945. He was offered employment with them if he moved to Chicago but declined the offer and stayed in Green Bay. Sometime later he went to work for the Northern Paper Mill in Green Bay as a mill laborer and worked his way up to a production supervisor in the converting department. He stayed there until his retirement in 1972. The Northern Paper Mill Company changed its name to American Can Company and then to the James River Corporation as it was purchased and merged with the larger companies.

"Morton and Blanche ran a geneal store in Fiat, Indiana. He is listed on his son Garth's birth certificate and in the 1910 and 1920 censuses as a merchant. Morton later went back to barbering and had his barber shop located in downtown Bluffton. He barbered up until the day he died in 1960.

Grandchildren's memories: The following episode seemed to take place every time we visited our grandparents in Bluffton, Indiana. Grandpa Swigert wore a hearing aid due to his partial deafness, and did not hear well even when it seemed to be working properly, or maybe he was just entertaining the dinner guests. At the conclusion of dinner, Grandma Swigert would push back her chair and say "I've had sufficient" and Grandpa would answer "Been a fishin?". "No", Grandma would say, "I've had plenty". Grandpa would then reply "You caught twenty?". Grandma would then look at Grandpa and say "You old fool!" and he would answer back "And broke your pole?". This was usually followed by a lot of laughter from everyone in attendance. Then the men retired to the living room and the ladies would clear the table and do the dishes."
