City: Milwaukee
State: WI
Inducted: 1975

During Bakers 1951-72 tenure as only ABCs fourth top leader, the Congress enjoyed a massive growth in membership, jumping from 1.3 million to more than four million. His media background, calling for careful attention to detail, plus his foresight in keeping ABC in pace with fast-moving technological advances, kept the organization in tune with the times. He also gave unselfishly of his time and talent to the National Bowling Council and became active in the international world of tenpins serving as Federation Internationale des Quilleurs President from 1977-83.
