    Wondering if I might be able to use your photo of Elvin Mesger for an article that I’m writing for a bowling publication. I will give you proper acknowledgement below the photo – let me know how you want it worded. No one at USBC/BPAA seem to know who it is! They are researching for me…

      The Elvin Mesger photo is from the 1975 ABC Yearbook, so check with the USBC for the rights. There’s a whole John Archibald feature story about Mesger in that publication. During the 1990s I interviewed him for my column. That story is reprinted in my book The Bowling Chronicles. Please let me know when your article appears. Best of luck!

    Okay, thanks. I will check with USBC.

    Matt Cannizzaro of USBC approved the photo. The article appears in this week’s edition of California Bowling News, which you can view at http://www.californiabowlingnews.com (photo included!).
