Description:
Gary A. Cavalli, who served as Stanford’s sports information director and later associate athletic director from 1974 to 1983, draws on his experiences and journalism training to weave a colorful narrative of Stanford’s sport history. He illuminates the personalities, like Chuck Taylor, Bob Murphy, Joe Rutz, and Bill Walsh, who shaped Cardinal football, Stanford’s Athletics Department, and the university’s commitment to women’s sports. Cavalli also touches on his post-Stanford career at his public relations firm, Cavalli and Cribb, how he cofounded the American Basketball League and built the Foster Farms Bowl.
