"world championships" when Minneapolis was a medalist

Came across this gem, and thought it would be good to share.

International championships under IBL auspices. The 1937 open field comprised 19 teams from 18 countries – the USA had 2 teams.

The records reflect that in 1937:

1. Austria

2. Culbertson

3 = Minneapolis

   = Hungary

Details in Truscott's excellent column here:  http://www.nytimes.com/1987/06/21/style/bridge-a-viennese-victory.html   21 June 1987

Might it be an idea to rename USA2 to "Minneapolis" on the 80th anniversary of this tournament? Smile
