    Lou and Eleanor: A Baseball Love Story:

    Eleanor G. Twitchell: Born: March 6, 1904, Chicago, IL
    Died: March 6, 1984, New York, NY, age 80
    Married Lou: September 29, 1933.


    Lou Gehrig / fiancee Eleanor Twitchell: Comiskey Park: June 19, 1933, Comiskey Park



    January 6, 1934: Lou Gehrig and Wife Wearing Hawaiian Leis
    Mr. and Mrs. Lou Gehrig smile their greetings to Hawaii in return for the floral lei with which they were greeted upon their arrival there, while en route to Japan where Lou is touring with the American League All-Star Baseball Team.


    February 1, 1935: Mr. and Mrs. Lou Gehrig Sitting With Sports Writer
    Lou Gehrig, big shot in American baseball, accompanied by Mrs. Gehrig, are pictured in their Paris hotel. Gehrig was returning home in easy stages after his tour of Japan with the All Star Baseball team. With them is the well-known sports writer, "Sparrow" Robertson.


    February 13, 1935: Mr. and Mrs. Lou Gehrig Posing While Traveling
    Lou Gehrig, slugging first baseman of the New York Yankees, and his bride, are pictured as they returned to New York from England on the S. S. Berengaria. They completed a world tour, starting in Japan soon after the World series. Gehrig told interviewers that he had not seen his Yankee contract for 1935, but that he would ask for a salary of $35,000, since he believed he would take the place of babe Ruth as far as batting was concerned.


    Eleanor and Lou Gehrig Returning from Vacation
    Lou Gehrig with his wife photographed shortly after their arrival in New York after their arrival in New York after a world tour. The Yankee first baseman says that he expects to have no trouble concerning his 1935 salary but reports have it that Gehrig will attempt to put a dent in Colonel Rupperts bankroll.

His wife is taking down notes prepared after wading through more than 30 volumes and leaflets on criminology and parole. He will be officially sworn in on Monday. Mayor LaGuardia, who appointed Gehrig to the post, is counting on his influence with wayward youth on setting them along the straight and narrow.


    November 10, 1954: Blanche McGraw (John McGraw's widow), Mrs. Lou Gehrig, unidentified.


    July 27, 1957: Mrs. Lou Gehrig And Mrs. Babe Ruth - New York, NY:

    Lou Gehrig/Babe Ruth: July 4, 1939, Lou Gehrig Day, Yankee Stadium.
    The Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth. With that hug, Babe ended their 5 year 'feud'.

    I see that Bill has already posted some of my older Gehrig edits here...but let's see what else I can add from my collection. I guess I could start with my colorization of Lou on the bench, 1939.

    Fantastic collection!

    One photo shows "Mrs. Gehrig and colleagues". I don't know the identity of the male, but the woman on Mrs. Gehrig's right is Blanche McGraw, the widow of John. Three years later she is the person with the bouquet of roses at the last Polo Grounds home appearance of the New York Giants.
