Playing the Field by Dink Carroll

An idea occured to me some time ago, and I have decided to finally go ahead and do it. I have noticed in all of my research that I often find the most interesting pieces of information about old-time hockey not in the game reports, but in the "commentary" sections of the sports pages, which are generally written by the editor of the sports section. So I decided to go do some digging, gather the names of the relevant writers, and search for everything that Google archives would give me that they had written about hockey. This is an ongoing project and anyone who wants to help me is more than welcome.

Dink Carroll is my first subject. I threw a bunch of different forms of key word queries into Google News until I was satisfied that I had exhausted what they had on his hockey writing. A few articles I deemed uninteresting, but for the most part, I found some interesting nugget in nearly every hockey column of his that I uncovered. So here they are.
