Saint Louis University star Ed Macauley was the cover athlete for the January 1949 issue of the SPORT Magazine. A legend in the state of Missouri, Macauley was born and grew up in Saint Louis where he would play basketball in high school, university and into the pros. In 1948, he led SLU to the NIT Championship and was named the 1949 AP Player of the year. He would eventually go on to the NBA where he would lead the St. Louis Hawks to the 1958 NBA Championship, along with being named the very first MVP of the All-star game. Tunrs out Macauley was actually the centerpiece of the trade that brought Bill Russell to the Celtics.
SPORT Magazine, which ran from 1946 to 2000, celebrated what its editors accurately anticipated would be the coming explosion of interest in professional and amateur sport in post-war North America.
