Transcript In Memorial FRED COBB We feel it fitting on this first occasion for the National Collegiate golf tournament to be held in the state of Texas that special tribute be paid a man whose tireless efforts helped popularize the sport of golf in the colleges and universities of our nation, the late Fred Cobb of North Texas State College. Golf enthusiasts throughout the country mourned his death in the early spring, shortly after the season began. His record as golf coach at North Texas State is a remarkable one. Cobb began building the Eagles as a national power in college golf shortly after World War II. After a 13th place finish in 1947, the Eagles took tenth place in 1948. Then they began a string of four consecutive national team titles that was not broken until last summer when the Eagles finished fifth by a narrow five strokes behind champion Stanford in a closely matched team competition. During his tenure at North Texas State, Cobb developed many splendid golfers. Achieving the greatest fame was Bill Maxwell, who won the National Amateur title while still a student in 1951. Joe Conrad, a teammate of Maxwell's, was state amateur champion of Texas, and there were many more standout performers who came under the guidance of this man who so greatly loved the game of golf. The present squad, entered in the tournament at Brae Burn, is the last group of "Fred Cobb's boys." Now ably directed by Herb Ferrill of the North Texas athletic staff, such stars as Marion Hiskey (semi-finalist in the National Collegiate last year), Ray Ferguson, Stan Mosel, Benny Castloo, Max Wilkinson, and A. J. Triggs started the campaign under Cobb. Veteran N.C.A.A. golf committee chairman Ted Pay- seur ably summarizes a tribute with these words: "Fred Cobb was in the national collegiate golf picture for many years. He was an officer in the National Golf Coaches Association over a long period, and president of that group in 1952. He served the Golf Committee on national problems and was helpful in all his contributions. He was a fine man, a good leader, a fine inspiration to his players, and we will certainly miss him in intercollegiate golf."
