Brennan, Brian. Brennan. Calgary: Fifth House, 2001.

AB: This book provides a sampling of outstanding Albertans throughout history. It contains very brief accounts of sports figures such as Pearl Borgal (p. 123), who pioneered women's sports broadcasting, and Neil 'Scotty' Munro (p. 152), a hockey visionary who helped develop the Western Canada Junior Hockey League. It also includes Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum inductees Jimmy Fitzsimmons (p. 175), one of Canada's top racehorse jockeys who twice won the Queen's Plate, and Joe 'Justice Joe' Kryczka (p. 186), notable for his contributions to the Prague negotiations for the eight-game hockey series between Canada and the Soviet Union and for playing a key role in bringing success to the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary.
