Avery Important Passenger



Excerpted from an article in the Toledo Blade, Toledo, Ohio, on this day in 1948:

"ABOARD THE QUEEN MARY EN ROUTE TO ENGLAND, by telephone to London, Jan. 23 (AP) - Hopes of settling the United States' Olympic hockey controversy appear no brighter after a conference of the two central figures in the dispute--Avery Brundage [pictured] and Walter Brown. Brundage, president of the U.S. Olympic Committee, and Brown, vice president of the Amateur Hockey Association, talked the matter over aboard ship yesterday."
