Product description

GRANTLAND RICE Sports writer Grantland Rice signed this letter, typed on letterhead of The National Golf Review in 1936, in response to a request for information. Rice was a modern pioneer of sports journalism who coined the nickname "The Four Horsemen" for Notre Dame's 1924 offensive backfield. Typed letter signed "Grantland Rice.". 1 page, 7¼x10½, on letterhead of The National Golf Review. Nov. 25, 1936. Addressed to Dean Cornwell, Gainsborough Studios, New York City. In full: "Dear Dean: I very much appreciate your letter of the 23rd, and trust I have indicated on the enclosed sheet the data you desire. If this is not just what you want please let me know. Sincerely yours". Considered a pioneer of modern sports journalism, Rice (1890-1954) was the first 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" and nicknaming Notre Dame's 1924 offensive backfield the "Four Horsemen" after an upset win over Army, Rice covered the careers of such legendary sports greats as Bobby Jones, Jack Dempsey, Bill Tilden, Helen Wills. His column The Sportlight was nationally syndicated in 1930, and Rice also produced documentaries and wrote books about sports, including one about his favorite sport of all, The Duffer's Handbook of Golf (1926).
