Herbert Manchester was a sportsman and historian in the early part of the twentieth century. He lived in New York City. Paula Welch is a sports historian at the University of Florida.
A real contribution to American history. * The Sportsman * Reissued with a new foreword by Paula Welch, it is still an informative glimpse of an ever-intriguing subject. * The Dallas Morning News * Most striking are the prints: gorgeous reproductions...all contemporary with the periods they picture. But quite remarkable is the text: contemporary records, culled during 20 years of loving labor. * Cleveland Press *
