Cover: Patterson and Harris

When Floyd Patterson met Roy Harris in the ring in Los Angeles, Hy Peskin, the ubiquitous sports photographer, was on hand with a fast lens and color film. The result was this cover picture, which was rushed to the engraver in Chicago, and established a new production record for four-color in SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.
