Inducted: 1969

Luby founded the Bowlers Journal in 1913. He was a traveling shoe salesman who scurried back to Chicago each week to bowl in the famed Randolph league. Out of this interest grew plans for the weekly newspaper, which later became a national monthly publication under the leadership of his son, Mort Sr., who also is in the Hall. His grandson, Mort Jr., another Hall member, became a third-generation publisher before he sold the business.
