In anticipation of this weekend's induction at TCONA of Brad Rutter & David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace and Amy Wallace to the Trivia Hall of Fame, I dug up my old copies of Trivia Unlimited magazine to find the write-ups for the earlier inductees to the original Trivia Hall of Fame. (I did Casey Kasem last year, and I wanted to finish the set.)
It looks like I don't have a copy (either print or Xerox) of the May 1980 issue, introducing the Hall of Fame and featuring the induction of Robert Ripley. But I was able to find the May 1981 and 1982 issues, and so I present the inductions of Art Fleming and James Parish.
Art Fleming (from Trivia Unlimited, May 1981)
This is the second bio of Fleming I've featured on this blog. At some point between 1974 and 1981 he married and had a couple of kids. Good for him!
James Parish (from Trivia Unlimited, May 1982)
Bonus write-up of the California State University Trivia Bowl (also from Trivia Unlimited, May 1982)
