That walking-around good humor man was in his element. A sports banquet, with friends, laughter and tales of the past -- most of them about the guest of honor, Arthur Donovan, as distinctive and unforgettable an individual as God ever blessed with breath.He was to be the brunt of the jokes, the "heavy," the target of the jocular abuse.
