Abstract:

The John "Snookie" Walker Photograph Collection documents the activities and individuals associated with some of the athletic clubs organized and managed by Walker from the early 1950s to the 1970s.

The collection consists of individual and group portraits of players and coaches; views of basketball games; and athletic award presentaions. Depicted are some of Walker's basketball teams, including Snookie's Sugar Bowl Five, the New York Rens, and several teams from the Biddy Basketball League of Metropolitan New York.

Other images include softball and swimming team portraits; an individual portrait of an unidentified member of the Globe Travellettes; exterior views of the Sugar Bowl Restaurant; a party honoring one of Walker's coaches, Roy "Lindy" Paige; Walker being presented as one of the recipients of the Youth Service Award by New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller (ca. 1959); a photomontage of the 1937 Shark Club swim team; assorted snapshots of family members, friends, associates, sporting events and awards banquets; and portraits of Walker and his family.

The collection also includes a scrapbook depicting a salute to Walker given at the Minisink Town House on April 20, 1985. Present at this event were the Reverends Calvin Butts and Wyatt T. Walker, New York City Clerk David Dinkins, several past members of Snookie's Sugar Bowl Five and the Harlem Globe Travellettes, past coaches, friends and family members.
