Golf! And So Much More…

Jack Nicklaus at the World Golf Open Championship
New photographs from the Tufts Archives (Pinehurst, N.C.) featuring professional and amateur golfers are now available on DigitalNC. These photographs bear witness to Pinehurst’s prominence as a mecca for golf enthusiasts during the early part of the twentieth century, and depict legendary figures such as Sam Snead, Bobby Jones, Glenna Collett Vare, Jack Nicklaus, and Peggy Kirk Bell.

But while Pinehurst may be best known for golf, other photographs show a lot of other activity happening there as well, including horse racing, boxing matches, dog shows, archery, costume balls, and more. There’s even a picture of ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his wooden companion, Charlie McCarthy.
