William Harrison (Jack) Dempsey
A Flame of Pure Fire: Jack Dempsey and the Roaring '20s A Flame of Pure Fire: Jack Dempsey and the Roaring '20s by Roger Kahn
Dempsey, boxing's heavyweight champion of the world from July 4, 1919, to Sept. 23, 1926, drew more people to a sporting event than ever before (more than 120,000 in 1926); and his rematch with Gene Tunney in 1927 produced the biggest gate to that date at a prizefight, more than $2.6 million. When he focuses on Dempsey and his fights, Kahn is at his best. When he goes afield, he runs into trouble. A Flame of Pure Fire may not knock you out. It's still a good book.
Byron Raymond White
The Man Who Once Was Whizzer White: A Portrait of Justice Byron R. White The Man Who Once Was Whizzer White: A Portrait of Justice Byron R. White by Dennis J. Hutchinson
Hutchinson provides the first definitive biography of Justice Byron "Whizzer" White, this century's most famous scholar-athlete, who served on the Supreme Court for 31 years and was the author of the famous dissenting opinion in "Roe vs. Wade." Written by a former clerk of White's and a distinguished Constitutional historian, this flesh-and-blood portrait is based on extensive archival work and scores of interviews with White's former colleagues.
