Boxing Interviewer of the 40s & 50s. Speed Reilly

Feb 28, 2019
I'm searching for as many photographs as I can of my grandfather Speed Reilly (radio announcer) He would have interviewed most all boxers in the 40s and 50s before his death. So far these archives have produced two of him interviewing The Beast, and Archie Moore. I am interested in finding any more of him that may be out there. Attached are the two I was able to find. He is the obvious one in the hat holding a microphone. Thank you and much appreciated.

Hi @Samiam1000, those are some cool pictures of your grandfather.

Have you looked through the archives on Jo Sports Inc.? They have a large collection of vintage pictures; I'm sure there's a chance he could be pictured in one of the ones on there. Here's a link for you:
