Re: [ARSCLIST] Bobby Jones chanpionships, 1930
As a follow on to Tom's suggestion, I bet The Minnesota Historical
Society might know who to talk to. Also, you could try Sid Hartman of
the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He's been at the center of Minneapolis
sports since the 1940s.

I'm assuming you tried the Museum of Broadcasting in NYC? Try the
Pavek Museum in MN. You never know what turns up there. Also, I'd make
some calls around Minneapolis. It's a small enough city that someone
might know a radio buff or other old character who might have an
archive of stuff. Maybe start at the city historical society? Since
this took place in MN, I'd lean toward starting with Pavek because
they might well know someone who knows something if they don't have
first-hand source material on hand.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Bobby Jones chanpionships, 1930
For the U.S. Golf Assciation I'm trying to locate broadcast material
related to the U.S. Open broadcasts on July 10, 1930 from
Minneapolis. Description of play and interviews following Bobby
Jones' victory were broadcast over CBS (5:10-7PM) and an interview
with Jones' friend, O.B. Keeler on NBC. There were surely news
reports as well.
There was a further group of NBC and CBS broadcasts during September
22-27 during the U.S. Amateur at Ardmore, PA.
Later that year there was a parade for Jones in NYC.
Has anyone audio or film from the above events?
