Complete All-Americans to 1950

Bowlers Journal dates its “official” All-American selections from 1938.  In addition to the team for the past season, the magazine also named two retroactive teams for the periods 1910-25 and 1925-36.  No selections were made in 1938-39.  Starting with the 1939-40 season, BJ has named three All-American teams ever since. 

The magazine’s annual yearbook publishes a list of the past All-American teams.  Because of space limitations, only the First Teams are given.  What follows is a complete list of all the Bowlers Journal All-Americans through 1950.
