Veterans Boxing Association Ring No. 6
13th Annual Banquet
Honoring
Frankie Conway
"Man of the Year - 1961"
Sunday Evening May 7, 1961

Veterans Boxing Association Ring No. 6 apparently was organized in the late 1940s by a number of former boxers, a good number of whom had gone into the business world in Camden and its surrounding suburbs after their ring careers had ended. The purpose of the association, besides it function as a social club, was probably identical to that of Philadelphia's Veterans Boxing Association Ring No. 1, whose website reads as follows:

The purpose for which the corporation is to be organized are to be fostered and promote the good and general welfare of the Veteran Boxer. To take care of the sick and disabled Veteran Boxer who may be in distress by means of contribution with in the means and to the best of the associations ability. To take an active interest in the administration of all the laws that affect the sport of boxing in the state of Pennsylvania to insure that its members are given the recognition deserving their past effort and protect the active boxers to the best of the associations ability.

Ring No. 6 held its first annual banquet in 1948. These became quite impressive affairs over time, with many prominent guest and speakers. 

Besides activities related to boxing, Ring No. 6 supported local charity drives and youth organizations, including the Morgan Village Little League in Camden.

The entire banquet program is presented here, with links to pages about some of the people and businesses mentioned.

I would like to learn more about Camden's Veterans Boxing Association Ring No. 6, if you have further information or material about this organization or any of its members, please e-mail me.
