After the Tow O Shanter will be Okay Hello to all. as Ever George Zaharias" George Zaharias (1908-1984), born Thomas Vetoyanis, was a professional wrestler called "the Crying Greek from Cripple Creek," usually cast as the ring villain. In 1938 he met Babe Didrickson, track and field gold medalist at the 1932 Olympics, at a celebrity golf tournament. They married later that year, and George managed Babe's golf career thereafter, also caring for her during her long battle with cancer. Football Hall of Famer Alex Karras portrayed George Zaharias in the TV movie Babe (1975). Fred Corcoran (1905-1977) was an American agent, sports promoter, golf administrator and enthusiast. He managed the career of Babe Zaharias, entering her into the 1954 Los Angeles Open as the first women to play in a PGA tour event. Corcoran founded the Ladies Professional Golf Association and the Golf Writers Association of America. In 1975 he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, one of the first honorees to not have had a career in competitive golf. Lightly creased Brown markings on lower left edge and top left. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
