Note – please read George Kimball: An appreciation by Michael Gee, now posted on the Boston Herald’s website.
George Kimball, who served as a sports columnist at the Boston Herald from 1980 to 2005, has died.
Known most for his boxing writing, Kimball was especially prolific in the final years of his life, as he wrote the books Four Kings and Manly Art. At the Herald, he had been the main NFL columnist for the paper.
On the website TheSweetScience.com, Thomas Hauser remembers Kimball, and posts a profile he wrote of Kimball back in 2004.
The man led a fascinating life.
