Professor Stewart, the BBC and Tennis 1936
This chapter begins with a discussion of the friendship between Rupert and A. W. Stewart, author and Professor of Chemistry at Queen's University, Belfast. It then details how radio broadcasting made Rupert Gould a truly household name — a ‘media star’ in modern parlance — during the 1930s. Rupert Gould's lifelong interest in the rules and game of tennis was put to good use during the 1930s when he was invited, from about 1930, to umpire at several of the great Championships.
