Question:

I remember my grandfather going on that his cousin was a star Tennis player in the early 20th century.  I think is name was Holman Warde he died in the 1960's.  Can you tell me how I can reseearch his career?

Answer:

I believe you are referring to the member of the Tennis Hall of Fame - Holcomb Ward who died in 1967.  A full listing of all the members of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum can be found online at: http://www.tennisfame.com/hall-of-famers/members   There is a sketch about Mr. Ward online from this listing.  You may also wish to contact the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum in Newport, R.I. about further details newport@tennisfame.com
