As I often say, I get the best emails.
The other day I received an email from Matt Munson, a descendant of George Munson, and he was kind enough to pass along the above photo. The only other photo of George Munson that I'm aware of comes from The National Game and is a cropped version of Matt's photo:
So it's really neat to get the full image and what is, essentially, a new picture of George Munson. I'm very appreciative to Matt and the Munson family for sharing this image and allowing me to post it here for all to see.
George Munson was, of course, a St. Louis newspaper man and secretary for both the St. Louis Maroons and the St. Louis Browns. I have always found him to be one of the more interesting and genial figures in St. Louis baseball history and always enjoy writing about him. You can find plenty of information about the man here at the website and the old blog.
Thanks again to Matt and the Munson family.
