Boxing Hall of Fame[edit]

I removed the statement that Dorgan was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. The only reference I could find to support it was a single newspaper article, but I think the list of inductees of the organization itself , where Dorgan is NOT listed, trumps that.

Thomas Aloysius DorganTad Dorgan — This was his professional name. He was known to everyone as Tad Dorgan. Tad Dorgan brings over 30,000 Google results, while the other name brings less than 5000 (mostly mirror pages of the Wikipedia page). Pepso2 (talk) 18:54, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Clarification about retirement[edit]

I slightly altered the "Life in Great Neck" section because of a somewhat misleading statement about TAD retiring in the early 1920s. While it is true that he retired, on doctor's orders, from covering live sports events (he had a heart attack in the middle of a Jack Dempsey fight!) in the early 20s, he continued to draw both "Indoor Sports" and "Judge Rummy" for the Hearst papers up until he died in 1929. I didn't source this, because it's plain to see in any newspaper archive. I own several TAD original drawings published in the mid to late 1920s which bear this out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.96.46.105 (talk) 23:28, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
