    Biography
    As sports editor for the Winnipeg Tribune for over twenty years, Jack
    always made sure basketball had good coverage, particularly at the
    local level. His first assignment as a cub sports reporter in 1946-47
    was covering the seniors at the Y.M.C.A. As a sports reporter, Jack
    covered the senior league and chronicled the rise of Carl Ridd and Roy
    Williams from Gordon Bell to the 1952 Olympics.

    Jack was also instrumental in the formation of the Junior
    Men's League that produced national championship teams like the
    Stellars and the Winnipeg Light Infantry (W.L.I.).
