Bowler of Half Century

My March 2015 article in Bowlers Journal International tells the story of the 1951 Bowler of the Half-Century award.  Above is  the preliminary vote from the board of veteran bowling experts.  The final vote from the full membership of the National Bowling Writers Association is listed in the article.  Hank Marino also led that vote, and won the award.
