At the signing, left to right, are Duffy Lewis, Charles DeWitt, LaVerne (Bus) Still, William Keller and William DeWitt. The DeWitts represented the Browns and the others the city of Burbank in the signing that brought to an end the city's long quest for a major league baseball club to train in its fine memorial stadium."
