    Hello - I wish to express my gratitude of your website and films available to the public. It has been so-so long searching information regarding this race back in 1962 (Indoor Athletics - Rudolph Defeated – Los Angeles). I have been told that such race took place by family members including my mother. For my mother is Ms. J. Holmes. Thank You - so very much! The only remark/discrepancy is my mother’s name is Jean not Joan
