Milwaukee Journal, November 25, 1944:
Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, commissioner of baseball since 1921, died at St. Luke’s hospital Saturday morning at 5:35. He was 78 years old.
Landis, a gruff speaking old man with shaggy white hair, battered hat and keen wit, became a legend in his lifetime. He was noted for his fairness and as a man who always gave the underdog a break.
Unless they had too much melanin. In which case they were screwed.
In all seriousness, though, the linked article is an excellent obituary.
