    Arthur Aloysius McGovern---Artie McGovern

    Born: January 21, 1892, New York City
    Died: November 1, 1942, Phoenix, AZ, age 51,---d. Post-Graduate Hospital, after brief illness with kidney ailment.

    Physical Conditioning Trainer;
    Cortland Township (Westchester County), (1910 census)
    NYC Taxi Cab owner, chaufeur, (WWI Civilian Draft Registration)
    NYC, gym school, (January 12, 1920 census)
    Rye (Westchester County), physical instructor, (April 3, 1930 census)

    Father: Walter, born New York, November, 1860; Mother: Alice, born Ireland, November, 1862; Wife: Ruth, born Ohio, around 1893; Daughter: Ruth, born New York around 1920. Artie married Ruth around 1916.

    Artie was a colorful personality who assisted some of the most famous athletes in the world as a conditioning trainer. He helped Babe Ruth following his subpar (for him) 1925 baseball season. He also helped train boxing heavy-weight title-holder Jack Dempsey, Babe Didrickson, Gene Tunney and Gene Sarazen.

    Artie started out as a boxer with 100 fights. He broke a knuckle in his right hand during a fight. He had saved $6,000 and entered the taxi cab business, but it failed. A doctor friend, Dr. William Hills Sheldon, suggested he take up training others. He backed him, and Artie took the post of physical director at the New York Physicians Club, and later set up his own gym on West 66th Street in NYC. He became popular and opened up other gyms. In 1937 he had a staff of 100 people. His gross income was estimated at around $400,000 per year.

    His clients were not only famous athletes like John Farrell (golf) and Vinnie Riochards (tennis), but Grover Whalen, Marshall Field, John Philip Sousa and Whitneyh Warren. He was married twice. His first marriage ended in divorce and his second wife, the former Miss Ethel Colton survived him, along with his daughter, Ruth.

    L-R: Paul Whiteman (band leader), Artie McGovern,-------------------------------------------------------------------1933: Babe Didrickson, hanging upside down/Artie McGovern--------------------------------------------Sporting News' obituary, November 5, 1942, pp. 10.
    John Philip Sousa (music composer), Christy Walsh (standing), Babe Ruth.

    ---------1933


    The following 3 shots might be when Babe was consulting with Columbia Pictures, in 1947, when they were making the Babe Ruth Story with William Bendix.
    It looks like Bendix himself shaking hands with the Babe.

    Dorothy Ruth, when she was a little girl. No one knew until decades later that she was really Babe's own biological daughter. He hid it so well.

    1926: Dorothy Ruth is being held at the ballpark by Babe's first wife, Helen Woodford.
    L-R: Helen Woodford's mother, Helen Woodford, Dorothy Ruth, Nick Altrock.
