Obituary - Tennessean (April 22, 2009)
A native Nashvillian, he was a 1935 graduate of East High School and received an undergraduate degree from Peabody College (now Vanderbilt) in 1939, followed by graduate studies. After college, he began teaching and coaching in local schools, including North, Hume Fogg, Howard high schools, plus Calvert and Andrew Jackson elementary schools. He maintained friendships with his players, fellow coaches, sports writers and athletic enthusiasts throughout his life.
After refereeing his first high school football game at age 16, he had a four decade career refereeing football and basketball games at high school, college and professional levels from the 30's to the 60's. His career included refereeing the US Basketball Olympic trials, numerous college football bowl games and basketball tournaments, and even the Harlem Globetrotters, where he was part of the act.
Through athletics, he was a civil right activist and advocate for women's rights. For example, in the 50's, he was asked by Tennessee A & I (now Tennessee State University) President Davis to help organize and referee the first interracial college basketball game in Nashville, between his school and Georgetown College in Kentucky. He also advocated for media coverage of women's sports, and was in regular communication with sportswriters to publicize their accomplishments. An avid golfer throughout his life, he won a number of local tournaments around Middle Tennessee, and won the first golf championship at Bluegrass Country Club.
Until his death, he owned and actively managed All American Liquidators, a company that sells furniture acquired when hotels and motels refurbish. He started the company 40 years ago at age 55, after selling a wholesale sporting goods business that he owned for many years.
