Mort Luby Sr.
City: Chicago
State: IL
Inducted: 1974

Luby first suggested the formation of a bowling Hall of Fame in 1937, an idea that was realized in 1941. He also was a founding father of the Bowling Writers Association of America. He served as publisher of the Bowlers Journal from 1925 until his death after taking over the publication upon the death of his father, Hall of Famer David Luby. The Lubys are the only grandfather-father-son Hall combination.
