A Paul Krumske Bibliography

November 27, 2018

Paul Krumske (1912-1979) never won an ABC championship.  That was about the only thing missing from his resume.  He was captain of the BPAA Team Match Game champion Meister Brau Beer (1946-47), shared the Doubles Match Game championship with Joe Sinke (1945), and won the Individual Match Game championship in the last challenge match permitted (1944).  A seven-time All American, he was elected to the Bowling Hall of Fame in 1968, and ranked #44 in the 1999 BJI poll of 20th Century bowlers.  But perhaps Krumske’s greatest honor was being chosen as Chicago’s Bowler of the Half Century in 1950.
