Andrew Gelman writes about attitudes to Hungarian refugees in 1958. I commented
One of the lesser contributions of immigrants to American culture is
the soccer-style field goal kick. Yes, before 1959 all field goal
kickers kicked straight on. It was Pete Gogolak and his brother Charlie
who brought soccer-style kicking to the college level (Cornell for
Pete), and then to the pros. They were Hungarian refugees. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Gogolak
An example of how we all benefit from the interchange of people and ideas.
