Turnbull's business sense and generosity helped keep the team financially afloat. Calhoun's tireless work kept it relevant. And the two regularly conducted team business — some official, some not — in this building.

The crusty, cigar-chomping Calhoun spent 40 years at the paper, mostly as a telegraph and sports editor.

He died in 1963.
