In late 1949, Pinkie George wrote a letter to Sam Muchnick in St. Louis and brought up Billy Wolfe's
possible membership in the NWA. He suggested that Wolfe be admitted, and a majority of the
organization believed so also. "They feel thats a good way to control some of his actions by having
him as a member," George wrote about Wolfe. "Besides, we'll need the doe," George concluded.
Muchnick sent a message to Eddie Quinn in Montreal on January 27, 1953, telling him that the
"Burke and Billy Wolfe deal was closed here yesterday, and she turned over $30,000 cash to him.
The money is not wrestling money - she borrowed it from some banking people in Columbus, Ohio."
