Book Details


New York: Public Affairs, (2005). First edition. For the 100th anniversary of his birth, Povich's children David, Maury, and Lynn and his colleague at the Post, former sports editor George Solomon, edited this collection of his most beloved columns. This copy INSCRIBED BY ALL FOUR of the editors. The 20th century in sports from the famed Washington Post columnist who wrote his first story for the Post in 1924 and his last the day before he died in 1998. Povich, who had a strong sense of social justice, called for the integration of major league baseball in 1939--twenty years later he was still at it, attacking Washington Redskins owner George Preston Marshall for having an all-white team. Fine in dust jacket with only minor edge wear.
