"A Hero, A Godfather And A Prince": Colleagues Remember Sportswriter Larry Whiteside
Professor William Gould spoke at a memorial service in Boston for his friend and Boston Globe sports columnist Larry Whiteside:
Stanford law professor William Gould, a longtime friend of Whiteside who chaired the National Labor Relations Board during the Clinton administration, echoed many who spoke of Whiteside’s selfless attitude.
"He was the consummate gentleman," Gould said. "He was in the business of helping others. His winning personality opened doors in baseball. The ultimate honor would be to put 'Sides' in Cooperstown," in the Baseball Hall of Fame, he said. Gould said Whiteside was the first sports journalist awarded a Knight fellowship at Stanford.
