ELECTIONS: 1948

We had a problem with a couple of people who signed up to volunteer for the project, but then they disappeared off the face of the Earth. We added Mike Wyman for the 1948 election.

We took the top three vote getters for the Honoured Players category, and held firm on the 75% rule for the other categories.

"It was becoming obvious that the vast majority of committee members were continuing to pick the same people," said Chair Morey Holzman. "There was little variance of the votes – just the deletion of an elected member meant those votes were being redistributed. The result was a logjam, especially in the Oldtimers category."
