Harold: Harold Hart was the Best
The death Monday of Harold Hart a the St. Louis airport should not be dismissed with a fletting notice in the obituary page. In the area of bowling, Hart was something special.

Is there anyone in this world who can surpass Hart's record of having served as secretary of the same bowling league for an outstnding 40 years? I think not.

The Calument league of which Hart was secretary is soemthing speical too. In existance for 57 years, it is the third oldest league in the entire country...

'Their will never be another secretary like Hart', Bob Hatten, past president of the Calumet said yesterday: 'He did so many extra things during the season, it's hard to remember them all. we never ceased to marvel over the information and financial reports he gave us. He was a self-appointed historian. This was the way Hart thought. He was always one step ahead of everyone else.'

(Jim Obert - Peoria Journal - Oct 30, 1975)
