Flowers left for Marvin Hart
TIME Milestones, Sep. 28, 1931--Died. Marvin Hart, 55, heavyweight boxing champion of the world in 1905; at Ferncreek, Ky. The title was conferred upon him by James J. Jeffries after the latter had retired and Hart had knocked out Jack Root of Chicago. After eight months Hart lost to Tommy Burns in a 20-round fight at Los Angeles. Out of his championship he realized only $10,000, lived to complain: "I was born 20 years too soon."
