The July 2020 update features seven new biographies. The history of American sports is represented by pathbreaking golfer and golf course designer Alice Dye; longtime sportscaster Dick Enberg; Notre Dame football coach Ara Parseghian; and pro football hall of famer Y. A. Tittle. The update also includes radio and television broadcaster Ben Grauer; film producer Harriet Parsons; and actor and playwright Sam Shepard.
