Meritorious Service

Milt Rudo
City: Chicago
State: IL
Inducted: 1984


Rudo earned his niche in bowling's history by always endeavoring to better the sport, a dedication that reached far beyond four decades of business commitment to the Brunswick Corp. He was a creative executive who developed ideas that benefitted the industry. He fought for product improvement, including replacement of the hand towel and unsightly chalk (without which old-timers insisted they couldnt bowl) with hand dryers. Such innovations helped attract the family to bowling.
