In the Fall of 1989, on The White House Tennis Courts, President George Bush Wins a Doubles Match! Bush had Invited Congressman Sonny Montgomery, the Former Secretary of Interior, Thomas S. Kleppe, and Lewis M. Hubbard (Pictured below) to Fight It Out at Center Court. The President Noticed that a Close Friend of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx, Lew Hubbard, was Playing with a Tennis Racket - Not Quite Up To The President's or Lew’s High Standards.
