  • Meet The Sports Writers

    --------------------------------------------MEET THE SPORTS WRITERS

    Since the 1980's I've conducted this project on sports writers. I presently have over 2,300 of them, and have presented about 750 of them here (32%).

    I have endeavored to create this very specialized photo tribute to the sports writer. I have found photos for the vast, over-whelming majority of them. But I still lack photos for 9 of the older writers, including: Michael J. Kelly, Lewis B. Meacham, David Litton Reid, George Leonard Moreland, Henry L. Farrell, Alfred Wright, George Young and James Whitfield. I also lack photos for 4 modern sports writers. Vern Plagenhoef, Harry Dayton & Ed Linn. It would be greatly appreciated if any photos could be found for any of these good men.

    I have not strictly limited this photo archive to sports writers. I have also included sports editors and sometimes managing editors. But I have went even further. In order to give this archive enhanced, historical relevance, I have included William Hearst, Arthur Brisbane, Henry Mencken and Joseph Pulitzer.

    In order to go the extra mile to give this archive enhanced, historical value, I have also included a few literary writers who had happened to write occasionally about sports. They include: Ruth McKenney, Cornelia Skinner, Clara Margery Sharp, William Saroyan (pen name Sirak Garoyan), Philip Wylie, Nelson Bond, Hector Munro (pen name, Saki), Joseph Mitchell, Katharine Brush, Arthur Cheney Train, Robert Louis Fontaine, Corey Ford (pen name, John Riddle).

    In order to give this archive enhanced historical relevance, I have included 42 managing editors of newspapers. Carr Van Anda (New York Times, 1904-1932), Oliver Bovard (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1910-1938), Alfred Kirchhofer (Buffalo Evening News, 1927-1956), Edwin James (New York Times, 1932-1951), Orville Shelton, Fresno Bee (?-1971), Walter Howey (Chicago Herald-Examiner, 1917-1954), Arthur Gelb (New York Times, 1967-1990), Abraham Rosenthal (New York Times, 1963-1988), Joe McGee (Log Cabin Democrat, 1920's-1984), Barney Kilgore (Wall Street Journal, 1941-1967), Clift Garboden (Boston Phoenix), Norman Isaacs (Louisville Times/Louisville Courier), John Popham (New York Times, 1933-1958), Marc Laguerre (Sports Illustrated, 1960-1974), Hugh Fogarty (Omah World-Herald, 1944-1971), Robert Douglas (Arkansas Gazette, 1948-1981), Tom Matthews (Time Magazine, 1929-1953), David Golding (Army Stars and Stripes), Robin Walsh (Belfast Telegraph), Howard Simons (Washington Post, 1966-1984), Henry Justin Smith (Chicago Daily News, 1901-1936), Rollo Ogden (New York Post/New York Times, 1891-1937), Ralph Ingersoll (New Yorker/Time, 1925-1940), Paul Steiger (Wall Street Journal, 1991-2007), Ken Wells (Wall Street Journal, 1982-2006), Jacob Lewis (New Yorker), Pierre Berton (Canadian Macleans, 1947-1957), Ben Bradlee (Washington Post, 1965-2012), Susan Cuesta (Cigar City Magazine), Frank McCulloch (Time-Life), Frank Murphy (Worcester Telegram, 1945-1966), Gene Roberts (New York Times, 1965-1972, Philadelphia Inquirer, 1972-1990), Walter M. Harrison (Oklahoman editor), John O'Connell (Bangor Daily News, 1928-1954), Bob Brooks (Raleigh News and Observer, 1972-1986), Clark Davey (Canadian editor), Joseph Donlan (London Sun, 1971-?), Pete Weitzel (Miami Herald, 1965-1995), Pete Lyons (Autosport), Harry Hindmarsh (Toronto Daily Star, 1912-1956), William Chon (New Yorker, 1952-1987), John Jones (Financial Times, 1976-?)

    In order to give this archive even more historical relevance, I have included 22 city editors of newspapers. Charles Chapin (New York Times, 1898-1918), Earl Walker (New York Herald-Tribune, 1926-1935), Arthur Stokes (San Jose Mercury News), Ben Hitt (San Jose Mercury News, 1945-1979), Agness Underwood (Los Angeles Evening Herald-Express, 1947-1968), William Shelton (Arkansas Gazette, 1952-1991), Harry Romanoff (Chicago Herald & Examiner), Albert Johnson (Providence Journal, 1946-1986), Ed Young (Baltimore Sun, 1935-1954; Providence Journal-Bulletin, 1954-?), Kalil Ayoob (Bangor Daily Commercial, 1937-1990), Frank Bolden (Pittsburgh Courier), Earl Selby (Philadelphia Bulletin, 1959-1964), Tom Caton (Los Angeles Herald-Express;Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, 1948-1975), Harvey Schwandner (Milwaukee Journal/Milwaukee Sentinel, 1946-1975), Matthew Paul (Bangor Daily News), Sir Patrick Sergeant, Harry Nichols (New York Daily News, 1922-1969), Howard Ziff (Chicago Daily News), Harllee Branch (Atlanta Journal), Jimmy Carnahan (Nashville Tennessean, 1968-1993), Bob Strebeigh (San Francisco Chronicle), Al Reck (Oakland Tribune, 1936-1958).

    It is my fervent hope that this photo tribute archive to our sports writers brings joy and happiness to their many readers and their descended families. I welcome any contributions, photos, information, etc.
    -------------------------------------
    About this thread. Evolution of a project. I thought I'd just jot down a couple of notes to whoever might be following this thread, to let them know how it came about.

    At the end of the day, I hope to be remembered for my work on Ty Cobb, baseball photos and sports writers. This particular thread was started February 14, 2007. So, I'm into my 5.5 year milepost on working on this project, almost on a daily basis. It actually started long before 2007. This sport writers project began in the 1990's, and came out of my Ty Cobb research. I was trying to build a 'jury' of Ty's peers to judge whether or not Ty was better than Babe Ruth.

    So I began to build up a consensus of professional observers who had seen both play and were paid to watch baseball. Not just normal fans, but more critical, skeptical observers, with no reason for partiality. That is how this project first began. I wrote the lists on large, yellow lined paper and had to restart a lot when I found new people. Finally, when I got my first computer in October, 2000. I could save tons of time by creating an Excel file and simply insert the new entries. Made my life SOOO much easier and simpler.

    I originally tried to find the most knowledgeable, famous sports writers from 1906 to 1930, in order to support the Cobb/Ruth issue. But later came to drop that and make the sports writers a project independent and on its own. This photo tribute is limited by my desire to have photos. My online sports writers index is around 3,000 and comes from Sporting News obituaries.

    In this project, I have went through many phases. As my ability to conduct online searches improved, I was able to find more and more dates of birth and death. I added family genealogy. I learned to photoshop and add sepia tone and tint faces with flesh-colored tone. I added the covers of their books. I found many new photos on Ebay. I found photo-bucket and learned to convert their photos into photo-bucket code, and spare fever all that bandwidth.

    The quality of research is not based only on searching skills, although that has a lot to do with it. A researcher is only as good as their tools. But it takes a lot of time, too. Not just a month of inspiration but a career of it. A project that takes 10 years will be more valuable than one of 1 year. This is exactly how I built my Ty Cobb Consensus. Took daily searches over many, many years. Just wanted to share some random thoughts with the house this morning. This thread might be in its 5th year online, but the project is around its 20th year. Just so you know.

    If you enjoy this photo gallery, you might also like our other ones, too.

      Cannon Article

      Jimmy Cannon (Sportswriter. Born, Brooklyn, Apr. 10, 1909; died, New York, Dec. 5, 1973.) James Cannon’s father was a clerk for the City of New York and a minor Tammany Hall politician, but his son grew to be one of the first iconoclastic sportswriters in the field. Jimmy Cannon started with the Daily News as a copy boy in 1924, beginning a career that spanned nearly a half-century. He became a cityside reporter for the News in 1926, but then moved to the Evening Journal. Cannon later switched to the Journal’s morning companion, the New York American, but when the two papers merged into the Journal-American in 1937, Cannon left to join the New York Post. He eventually went back to the Journal-American but once again returned the Post in 1967. During his career, he wrote a radio column, was a Washington correspondent, and also served as a combat correspondent during World War II. Sports, however, remained his first love. From 1940-60, Cannon built a loyal following amongst readers who enjoyed his unique, aggressive style. He became noted for items at the end of his columns that came under the heading, “Nobody Asked Me, but . . .."

                          Arthur John Daley

                          Born: July 31, 1904, New York City
                          Died: January 3, 1974, Old Greenwich, CT, age 75,---d. heart attack

                          New York sports writer;
                          Graduated Fordham University (Bronx, NY), 1926 with B.A.
                          New York Times sports writer, 1926 - 1942 & sports columnist, 1942 - 1974

                          Won a Pulitzer prize in 1956 for "outstanding commentary on the world of sports."

                          In 1942, he replaced John Kieran as writer of Sports of the Times. His favorite sport was baseball with football a close second.
                          -------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          Biography Resource Center:
                          Source: Dictionary of American Biography, Supplement 9: 1971-1975.


                          Daley, Arthur John (July 31, 1904 - Jan. 3, 1974), sportswriter and author, was born in New York City, one of two children born to Daniel M. Daley, a sales executive, and Mary Greene. He attended Fordham Preparatory School, and in 1922 he entered Fordham University, where he participated in baseball, basketball, football, track, and swimming. After breaking his left arm in a football pileup, he joined the student newspaper and eventually became its sports editor.

                          After graduation in 1926, Daley joined the New York Times as a sports reporter. One year later he reported on the heavyweight boxing match between Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney. In 1932 he was sent to Los Angeles for his first Olympic games, and four years later he covered the games in Berlin. In 1942, he succeeded John Kieran in producing the daily column "Sports of the Times." He wrote thousands of columns on all sports, but baseball remained his favorite. Daley's writing was characterized by fairness, intelligence, and wit; he soon became one of the most noted and quoted columnists in the United States. He was the recipient of the Grantland Rice award in 1961; the Sportswriter of the Year award in 1963; and the Professional Football Writers' Distinguished Writing award in 1970. On May 8, 1956, he won the Pulitzer prize "for local reporting under conditions not usually subject to a deadline." The awarding of this prize to a sports reporter was very rare. The columns cited by the Pulitzer committee were on boxing, baseball, horse racing, and track.

                          One of Arthur Daley's columns concerned a talented baseball player's betrayal of his principles and was turned into a book, The Natural, by Bernard Malamud. Daley himself authored and coauthored several books, including Times at Bat: A Half Century of Baseball (1950), considered at the time of its publication "the most comprehensive book on baseball ever published." He collaborated with his New York Times colleague, John Kieran, on The Story of the Olympic Games, an authoritative history of the games from the first Olympiad held in Greece in 776 B.C. through modern times.

                          Daley was a modest and diffident man who won the respect and confidence of those he covered. Joe DiMaggio once said, "I knew I could trust him from the first day I met him." Daley married Betty Blake on Nov. 28, 1928. Their home was in suburban Greenwich, Conn., and they had four children. Daley never retired, and he died while on his way to the office to write his column.

                            Paul Gallico (Sports editor. Born, New York, July 26, 1897; died, Monte Carlo, Monaco, July 15, 1976.) Among the most renowned sportswriters of the “Golden Age of Sports” was Paul William Gallico, sports editor and columnist of the Daily News from 1924 to 1936. Gallico joined the News in 1922 as a movie critic but was a sportswriter (1923-24) before becoming sports editor. He created many of his own best works by competing against the great athletes of the day. Gallico, a Columbia man who should have known better, boxed heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey and was knocked out in less than two minutes. He swam against Johnny Weismuller and golfed with Bobby Jones (less hazardous pursuits). Gallico also was a promotional mind who helped create the Golden Gloves amateur boxing tournament and the Silver Skates for amateur skaters, both major Daily News promotions with finals at the Garden. He left the paper to become an author. One of Gallico’s first major works was Farewell to Sports (1938), but the title was something of a misnomer since he later turned out a biography of Lou Gehrig. Gallico moved to Europe in 1950 and there produced his most noted work, including The Snow Goose, Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris, and The Poseidon Adventure.
