Louis Dade was born in Missouri in 1908 and came to Fort Madison in 1926. He was soon employed as a chauffeur to O.B. Sheaffer. Dade became quite interested in golf in the 1930's. Since only Fort Madison County Club members were allowed to play on the Fort Madison course and African Americans were not able to join the Country Club, he would sneak onto the Fort Madison golf course before dawn to play before he went to work. In 1939, he became the first African American to win the Iowa Amateur Golf title.
