US Men's Figure Skating championship won by Richard "Dick" Button, reputed to be the first real master of "triple" jumps in figure skating. "Quad" jumps were not mastered in competition for another 50 + years! He has enjoyed a lengthy subsequent career commenting on TV broadcasts of major ice skating events. His expert prissiness will someday be missed by all skating aficionados.
