Abstract:

Correspondence, broadsides, programs for athletic events, newsletters, and clippings reflecting Barton's career as a professional boxer (1902-1909), as a sports writer for Minneapolis newspapers (1903-1957), as a boxing referee (ca. 1915-ca. 1940), and as a commissioner and secretary of the Minnesota State Athletic Commission (1942-1969).

The papers contain much information on Minnesota's Golden Gloves amateur boxing program (1930s-1950s), Barton's efforts to promote more stringent regulations for professional boxing, government investigations of boxing practices, and regulatory activities of the National Boxing Association of America. There are also references to other sports in Minnesota; letters from many sport writers, sports officials, and athletes, particularly Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney; and speeches and sports stories by Barton, including those republished in his book, My Lifetime in Sports (1957).

Also included are minutes, financial reports, and correspondence of the Minnesota State Athletic Commission concerning its regulation of boxing in Minnesota (1942-1957), and George Barton's correspondence, miscellaneous papers, and newspapers clippings while on the State Athletic Commission (undated and 1946-1969).
