Bud Collins: Sports Journalist - Champion of Champions


This exhibition celebrated the life and career of legendary sportscaster Bud Collins. A giant in the field of sports journalism, Collins had a brief stint as a professional tennis player but found his greatest success as a reporter, first at The Boston Herald and The Boston Globe, then as a television sportscaster for CBS Sports, NBC Sports, ESPN and other networks. He is widely credited with helping raise the profile of tennis in the United States--especially women's tennis--to the level of a major international sport. The exhibition featured personal and professional photographs, awards, articles written by Collins (including early pieces on Muhammad Ali), book manuscripts, television script pages, correspondence and memorabilia.

This exhibition is no longer on display.
