International Visitor

On Monday, English Author John Bryant visited New Jersey to take a look at the Shore Athletic Club's Johnny Hayes Collection. Mr. Bryant is researching a forthcoming book and is seen in this photograph commenting on Hayes' autograph book as club president Walter MacGowan looks on. The book contains autographs of many athletic greats of a century ago. Next year marks the centennial of Hayes' victory in the 1908 Olympic Marathon, comsidered a landmark race by many authorities on the sport.
