Sports icons Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, Arnold Palmer, Jim Brown, Sandy Koufax and Joe Namath were among the athletes who wore this belt made from genuine alligator skin featuring a five-pound, solid gold buckle, encrusted with diamonds, rubies and sapphires. For a quarter of a century, from 1950 to 1976, the S. Rae Hickok Belt was the most coveted and respected individual award in all of sports. It was given annually to the professional athlete of the year at an award banquet held in Rochester, N.Y. which became known as “the Academy Awards of Sports.”

The Old Bank

This book chronicles the dynamic life span of an important Rochester institution, a mutual savings bank, that by definition, was owned by its depositors and operated for their benefit. At one time in the U.S., there were more than 4,000 savings banks most having started in the 1800s. By 1990, many of these had dissolved, since they had achieved what they were created to do, and eventually fell prey to the changing and frequently unstable economic times. It also chronicles the contribution of some of the Presidents and Trustees to the Rochester community.

Through daily portraits, this five-year project charts the physical and emotional changes of two women at the opposite ends of the “young woman” spectrum. One was moving with excitement into adolescence; the other, with trepidation, into middle age. Each day, Elaine and Julia stopped their separate activities and met in their living room to pose for a portrait. They made 1,800 images—not truly comprehending the catalogue of energy and exhaustion, privacy and revelation, unexpected coincidences of mood and emotions that they created.
