   This obituary that I found yesterday intrigues me.  From the NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, 18 November 1951, pg. 70, col. 6:

_George Trevor,_
_Sports Writer, 59_
_Authority on Ivy League_
   _Football and Golfing_
   PORT CHESTER, N. Y., Nov. 17.--George S. Trevor, fifty-nine, sports writer on the former "New York Sun" for twenty-three years, died today at his home, 27 Claremont Avenue.
   Born In Cooperstown, N. Y., Mr. Trevor attended the Browning School in New York, and was graduated from Yale University in 1915.  He worked for "The Brooklyn Eagle" from 1922 to 1926, as a sports feature writer, transferring to "The Sun" in 1928.
   Mr. Trevor was known as an authority on Ivy League football, and an enthusiastic Yale fan.

(Several years ago, I found a "Miss Manhattan" Audrey Munson article from the New York Sun, in the Columbia University Library.  When I checked yesterday, the library doesn't have the New York Sun.  Curious.  I'll check the NYPL in about an hour--ed.)
