William Knox
City: Philadelphia
State: PA
Inducted: 1954

In 1913 in Toledo, Knox rolled the first 300 game in USBC Open Championships history. He won the all-events title 10 years later with 2,019, the first total above 2,000 and the record until 1933. Knox built a great reputation for match game and league bowling in the East. He once rolled a 300 game with a screen at the foul line so he couldn't see the pins.
