Jim Witt: A Life with Two Loves – Iron Game History – May, 1993

It is, I suppose, in the nature of things that a journal devoted to the history of the iron game would report the deaths of those who had distinguished themselves in the field of physical culture. Our field is a large and growing one, and the focus of IGH is concentrated on people who made their primary contributions prior to 1960, so we often have many deaths to report. Even so, it is a hard thing, especially when one of the men who died was one of our oldest friends.
