About

Overview

The booming decade following World War II saw many advances in sports and the continued integration of people of other races into major sports leagues. A lanky Oxford University medical student broke the four-minute-mile record, the first African American won a U.S. Open singles title, and the color barrier broke in the National Basketball Association. 1950–1959, Second Edition explores this decade of sports, presenting full-color and black-and-white photographs and further resources for interested readers.
