A Joe Norris Bibliography

May 23, 2016

No bowler had as long a career at the top as Joe Norris (1908-2001).  He rolled his first perfect game when he was 18—at the time, he was considered the youngest bowler to shoot a 300.  He bowled his last perfect game when he was 86—and became the oldest bowler to accomplish the fete.  In between he had a Hall-of-Fame career.  A selection of Norris articles follows.
