Sports and all that jazz : the Percy Hughes story
Swanson, Jim
Adult Nonfiction ML419.H84 S93 2011

Comments  Summary  Contents  Author Notes

Jim Swanson tells the story of Percy Hughes, who grew up in South Minneapolis, shagged balls at Nicollet Park as a teen, and learned some hard lessons about race in the military while stationed down South. As an adult Percy delivered the daily mail faithfully for decades - and still found the time to play a commanding role in the vibrant Minneapolis night-club scene of the 1 950s and 60s. He continued to play and teach extensively during the Big Band revival of more recent times, and also became a tennis coach of national stature.
