*** begin quote ***
 
Don Dunphy is a legendary sports announcer who worked in both radio and television from 1940 into the 1980’s. He was born in July of 1908 and passed away in July of 1998, so this book was written in his retirement as he approached 80 years old. While Dunphy did work as a correspondent for newspapers while attending Manhattan College in the late 1920’s, he never claimed to be a writer or an author, and this is the only book that Dunphy wrote. Because of his status in the field of broadcasting, Dunphy is in the The
National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame.

Dear John,
            I believe that Don is a member of the Class of 1930.
