Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989. Quarterback Bob Waterfield did it all: pass, run, kick, punt, and play defense. The Van Nuys High grad married his high-school sweetheart--actress Jane Russell--and took UCLA to its first Rose Bowl. He led the Cleveland Rams to the NFL title, in 1945; after the team moved to L.A., he guided the Rams to their first title in 1951. With fellow QB Norm Van Brocklin, Waterfield directed one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history, or, as the Examiner once wrote: "Waterfield led the Rams with the surety of Churchill, and the quiet dignity of Ed Murrow." Dated March 2, 1954.
