Still running : the autobiography of Nate Northington, the first African American football player in the Southeastern Conference / Nathaniel Northington ; with La Monte McNeese. (OCLC #851416833)

Individual biographies in football are classed under GV939.A2-Z. The Classification Web description looks pretty normal, so it is tempting to cutter by the author’s name. Doing so would hide his autobiography under N, between biographies of him written by others. Why not put his first?

Though ClassWeb doesn’t mention it, “Individual Biography” numbers have a specific meaning for A2-A5, which (unless specified) is detailed in the Biography Table; this particular title should have second cutter A3 for Autobiographies, diaries, etc. putting it close to the front, where it belongs.
