A Note on Sources

Full bibliographical references for all sources mentioned on this site can be found in the bibliography.  If a document is referred to on a given page by title or author name only, please consult the bibliography for a full citation. Please note that many newspaper articles and editorials do not provide an author name. All translations, unless otherwise indicated, are my own.

There are numerous sources to which my work is deeply indebted, as will be obvious to the readers of this site. Unfortunately, Jim Waltzer’s excellent book, The Battle of the Century: Dempsey, Carpentier, and the Birth of Modern Promotion  (Praeger, 2011), was published after the writing here had been finalized, so it is not cited. I urge anyone interested in the Carpentier-Dempsey fight to read it.
