(né Walter Barber, 1908-1992)
Well-known sportscaster from the early 1930s until his death. Barber, known as “The Old Redhead”, was one of the most familiar figures in sports broadcasting, particularly through his calling of World Series matches for NBC. A rather unfunny Japanese version of Barber can be seen in Tokio Jokio (McCabe, 1943).
