I have had these newspaper clippings of Howie and the prayer book from the funeral, hidden away in a scrap book for thirty years (the accompanying photo was taken from the web). I have never seen these articles or the articles from the preceding post, on the web. Seems like time has not been as kind to Howie's memory as he deserves. He was a iconic Los Angeles boxing figure at one time and deserves to be remembered, for boxing history's sake. Trainers like Howie and Mel Epstein are becoming extinct. I have other various newspaper clippings that I will be posting from time to time.
