My "cousin-in-law" Chip Hiemenz is on the archives committee at St Louis CC and is looking for more historic photos of the club.


Specifically, he's looking for photos from the 1925 Womens Am. There was a photo of the trophy presentation in Golf Illustrated, possibly taken by "Levick". Any connections to that photo, Golf Illustrated, "Levick" or that Womens Am would be much appreciated.


Any other SLCC background would be awesome too - I'd be happy to pass along or directly get GCA friends in touch with Chip. He's doing an outstanding job growing the golf archives of this fine club!


And be sure to check out the new historical artifacts he and the membership have put on display in the clubhouse over the past few years - most particularly the CB Macdonald plaque, the club pros clubs and the Bush family connection photos.

Ross,


I may have some photos from Golf Illustrated covering the US Womens Am at St. Louis. Iíll take a look for them today.


Here is a hole-by-hole description of the finals from the US Menís Am in 1921.

This image from the USGA Seagle Archives was cut off on the scan, but Chip may be able to contact the USGA for a better scan.  These articles were included in Golf Illustrated., November 1925:

Thank you Bret! This photo is the one Chip is looking for a higher resolution version of! The USGA did not have a better one. So also pursuing the Golf Illustrated and "Levick from New York" angles.


Appreciate the additional documents too - some of those Chip had not seen before!


Any additional documentation on SLCC from the group would be greatly appreciated!

Here's another version of the photo of the 5th hole, found in Golf Architecture in America.

And here's a 1921 diagram of the course and a 1937 aerial.

And an August 1921 Golf Illustrated article on the course prior to the Amateur.

Ross,


LA84.org also has a copy and their scan is a little clearer.

Golf Illustrated., November 1925

For a high resolution picture you will likely need to contact Getty Images.  I believe they hold the rights to the Edwin Levick Collection.
