Bill Nowlin [+]
Bill Nowlin, one of the three Rounder founders, lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of Rounder for most of its history. In addition to his work with Rounder, he has specialized in writing and editing books, most of them about another passion: baseball.
Two releases the first year, two the second, then 19 releases in 1972. Rounder grew quickly with a lot of help from a lot of people. Some early field trips. Building the business, a “hobby that got out of control.”
