id139-WA Hill and the Power of the 'Net

Written by DB   

If you log into the earlier article (q.v.) recounting the achievements of Surrey AC & Polytechnic Harriers members in the 1920s,you will find that,despite the considerable efforts of the athletics historians,no trace of the later years of sprinter William Hill had been discovered. However,the random decision to reproduce the original text(by permission of the authorship) showed what can happen. Jane Wentworth was surfing the 'net looking for any information about her sprinter grandfather,googled 'WAHill AAA 1920' and was directed to this site.So,the NUTS newshounds are on the trail(if Tony Blair's mob don't ban them,of course!). Watch this space!
