Julian Laderman awarded the 2016 Alan Truscott Memorial Award

We send our well deserved congratulations to Julian Laderman as this year the International Bridge Press Association presented him with the Alan Truscott Memorial Award for his book Bumplepuppy Days.

The Alan Truscott Award is presented periodically to an individual or organization that, in the opinion of the IBPA Executive, has done something in the world of bridge that Alan would have approved of and appreciated. Alan was an IBPA Executive member, serving as its president from 1981 to 1985 and was the long-time bridge editor of the New York Times.

Well received by many critics, Bumbplepuppy Days traces the development of the game of bridge and demonstrates how the worlds most popular card game came into being.
