Langtry served for 25 years as ABC secretary. Upon taking office in 1907 as the Congress second administrative leader, he moved ABC headquarters from Dayton, Ohio to Milwaukee. He administered Congress business through the first stages of growth and widespread public respect. It was his vision and determination during a period when ABC needed an uncompromising leader that helped build the sturdy foundation upon which the game rests.
