It made for fascinating reading to see how she went about doing her research on baseball (she isn't even a fan, which astounded me).
Her husband, whom she called Seymour, was interviewed by Ken Burns in 1990 for his documentary on baseball but, unfortunately, by then, was in ill health and the foottage was unusable. Otherwise, Seymour would be far more widely known now.
A fascinating book about an interesting woman who lived in the shadows of her husband's work, despite being an equal partner in that work. Highland recommended!!
