Patrick's book, "Long-Armed Ludy and the First Women's Olympics" (Charlesbridge, 2017), tells the story of Godbold, a Winthrop University physical education graduate who made history when she won a total of six medals at the Women's Olympics in Paris.
Patrick spent a lot of time touring campus, exploring the Louise Pettus Archives and Special Collections and asking archives' staff all kinds of questions.
