LES­LIE WELCH, THE MEM­ORY MAN

Evergreen - - Spring 2016 -

How

ironic that Les­lie Welch ( left) ( 1907- 1980), is now largely for­got­ten. His pho­to­graphic mem­ory meant he could re­mem­ber any­thing he had read about sport and his stage act in­cluded ran­dom ques­tions from the au­di­ence. Rarely was he stumped about the past but when he was asked about the con­tem­po­rary foot­ball league ta­ble, he ad­mit­ted he hadn’t yet seen it so didn’t know the an­swer.
