The 1920s sportswriter Arthur Robinson wrote the attached profile of his pal baseball legend Babe Ruth (1895 1948) for the editors of Collier's Magazine:

"For some years I have had a peculiarly intimate friendship with Babe Ruth...to the alternately and jeering millions who have watched this modern Beowulf at bat, driving out his smashes, it may have appeared that he was just a thick-skinned ballplayer, schooled to deafness on the field. The skin of my friend Babe Ruth is not thick."

"Mrs. Ruth calls him George, and it is of George Ruth, mainly, that I write, the Ruth that neither the public, nor the newspapermen, nor even his fellow players know."
