The Old Soft Shoe by Curry Kirkpatrick (1989)

I'll be the first to admit I hadn't heard of Sonny Vaccaro, until I stumbled upon this article by Curry Kirkpatrick in a 1989 issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine.

Potentially the origins of a term now known as 'seeding'?

Check out the article & see what you make of it...
