With no way for fans to verify their facts, the sportswriters of the 1920s enjoyed a near monopoly on sports news. Journalist Mark Inabinett explores the incomparable Grantland Rice's role in creating the legends that surrounded six sports stars--Jack Dempsey, Babe Ruth, Bobby Jones, Bill Tilden, Red Grange, and Knute Rockne. Photographs.
