The latest issue of "The Coffin Corner" is now available for immediate download from the PFRA website. The issue includes:

"PFRA-ternizing." An update from George Bozeka on the 2020 PFRA Convention at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio from June 18–21 next year that will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the NFL, including information on the special hotel discount and a list of events and speakers.

"Before the Bears, Before Halas: The Decatur Staleys" by Chris Serb. A history of the early years of the A.E. Staley Manufacturing Company’s industrial team that was founded in 1919 and would become the Chicago Bears, including the firm’s fortuitous hiring of George Halas as an employee and player-coach in 1920.

"Un-Bear-ably Close: Chicago’s Many Near Misses of the Post-War Era" by Andy Piascik. The Bears—along with the rival Packers—dominated the early years of the NFL, winning seven NFL titles in the 25 years since their first championship in 1921. But they would not win another league title until 1963. This is a recounting of the close calls and agonizing finishes of the club after World War II.

"2019 PFRA Bookshelf" by John Maxymuk. A bibliography of books on professional football (with a few notable exceptions) published or scheduled to be published in 2019, with highlighted titles by PFRA members.
