Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a long-time collector of vintage sports autographs, letters, and paper documents. My interest in sports autographs covers the golden era from the 1920s thru 1950s. Having corresponded with many old athletes, I have a natural interest in their lives--and deaths. I also maintain websites devoted to remembering drag racers and land speed racers who lost their lives while racing. Professionally I am a retired librarian/historian/curator living in Utah.

Hi Mel,
I am Ragna Almenning Brunsvik's granddaughter and would be glad to manage this memorial for you, if you wouldn't mind and have no problems with that. I don't remember what you need to transfer management to me, but let me know if there is anything I need to do to assist in a transition, if that is what you decide.
Thank you
Evelyn Mathews Day

picture of Jennie Hall

to Mel Bashor,
I am the daughter in law of Jennie Nelson
Hall. I feel sure the picture you have posted
for Jennie is not her. I have many pictures of
her. None that look like that.

RE: Mike Trent
You are welcome. Yes, I saw that he had lost his life in a race. It is sad, I lost my 19 year old son in 1991 due to a motorcycle wreck.

Thank you for having the page about Joe up. He is actually my great uncle and I was wondering some things about him, and I didn't really trust wikipedia.

Mel,

Thanks for sharing these pages with me. You have done a truly outstanding job documenting football history. These Men will never be forgotten.

Really enjoyed looking through this Mel. I added some of your pages to my Gridiron Cemetery. I have over 800 pages now.
