Early Sports Covered by Speaker at Breakfast Meeting

Will Teague, a history instructor at SouthArk, gave a very interesting lecture about the media (newspapers) and their relationship to the growth of the big three American sports of baseball, football and basketball.  He covered the origins of each sport and how each was covered and/or assisted in their growth by the newspapers of the late 19th century.  Join us for the next program in July.
