Biographical Note

Bill Millsaps of the Richmond Times-Dispatch once commented on Texas sportswriter Blackie Sherrod's writing abilities by saying, "John Kennedy once said Winston Churchill marshaled the English language and sent it into battle. Blackie invited the English language up on the porch, gave it some four-alarm chili and a Dr. Pepper, and sent it out to make the sports world laugh." Sherrod was recognized as a legend in sports writing, who hired and mentored a crack team of notable Texas sports journalists, including Dan Jenkins, Bud Shrake, and Gary Cartwright.

William Forrest "Blackie" Sherrod worked for nearly sixty years as a sports columnist and editor for several Texas newspapers (Temple Telegram, Fort-Worth Press, Dallas Times Herald, and Dallas Morning News) until his retirement in early 2003. A native of Belton, Texas, Sherrod was born on November 9, 1919. During his years at Belton High School, he competed on the football, basketball, and track teams. While in high school, he also wrote for the Belton Tiger, the school newspaper.

Sherrod attended Baylor University for one year (1937-38), but transferred to Howard Payne University, where he graduated in May 1941 with a B.A. degree in English. His football coach gave him the nickname of “Blackie,” and later an editor encouraged him to keep it in his byline. He served in the United States Navy during World War II in the Pacific Theater, completing 22 missions and earning three medals. Sherrod wrote for Our Navy under the name “Black Sherrod” from 1944-1947. Following the close of the war in 1945, he returned to Texas and began writing for the Temple Telegram in 1946.

The following year, he moved to north Texas, working for the Fort Worth Press from 1947 to 1957. His tenure at the Dallas Times Herald began in 1958. While there, Sherrod worked as both a columnist and as sports editor. Although his primary occupation was covering sports, his work as a journalist also included national events. For example, Sherrod reported on the 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the 1969 Apollo moon landing.

Blackie Sherrod transferred to the Dallas Morning News in 1985, and continued his writing there until his retirement in 2003. Sherrod’s regular columns include his Sunday "Scattershooting" section, and Viewpoints. He published three books: Blackie Sherrod: Scattershooting (1975); The Blackie Sherrod Collection (1988); and Blackie Sherrod at Large (2002). Sherrod also co-authored two books: Darrell Royal Talks Football (1963) with University of Texas football coach Darrell K. Royal; and I Play to Win (1971) with University of Texas football player Freddie Steinmark.

Honors Sherrod received in recognition of his lengthy and notable career include induction into the National Sportswriter Hall of Fame, the Red Smith National Sportswriter of the Year award, and an honorary PhD from his alma mater Howard Payne University in 1997. Sherrod also received the Texas Sportswriter of the Year Award sixteen times.

In 2013 Blackie Sherrod sold over 200 pieces of his artwork to fund a journalism scholarship in his name at Southern Methodist University. He died at the age of 96 at his home in Dallas, Texas on April 28, 2016.

Scope and Contents Note

The bulk of Blackie Sherrod’s papers spans the years 1944-2003, and is organized into eleven series. His notes, drafts, and newspaper article scrapbooks make up the largest portion of the collection. Other series include biographical material, press passes, buttons, subject files, correspondence, event programs, awards, photographs, artwork, clippings, and three of his typewriters. Topics include sports history, politics, the newspaper business, Dallas Morning News, and Dallas Times Herald.

In some cases, such as with the subject files, Sherrod’s method of organization has been retained. Sherrod arranged his subject files alphabetically by topic, and correspondence and many other series were arranged chronologically. Undated and miscellaneous papers are filed at the end of the series to which they belong.

Highlights of the collection include Sherrod’s early writing from the 1940s, correspondence with readers and notable figures, and his collection of press passes and buttons.
