Photograph signed twice : "Grantland Rice". B/w, 5x7. He has signed a second time on verso, adding his New York City address. Additional pencil notes on verso (unknown hand), along with fragment of a news clipping. Considered a pioneer of modern sports journalism, Grantland Rice (1890-1954) was thefirst U.S. newspaperman to gain fame by writing about sports. Credited with the popular phrase "It's not whether you won or lost, but how you played the game", he was the first to call a famous football backfield the "Four Horsemen" of Notre Dame, His elegant prose emphasized the heroic aspect of sport, helping to make legends of stars such as Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, Bobby Jones, Knute Rockne, Bill Tilden and Babe Didrickson Zaharias. His column, "The Sportlight", was nationally syndicated in 1930, and Rice also produced documentaries and wrote books, including The Duffer's Handbook of Golf (1926), about sports. Horizontal crease touching his hat, a couple of bends and small stains, paperclip impression at the top of the image, and some silvering to the darker portions. Otherwise, fine condition.
