Jane Stauffer

Jane Stauffer won one national singles, six national doubles and six national mixed doubles titles. She captured her first national doubles title in 1950 and her last in 1978, a twenty-eight year gap which no other player has replicated. Moreover she won the titles with five different partners, a record matched only by Hall of Famer Diehl Mateer. Early last week Stauffer sadly passed away at the age of eighty-nine, only a few days after she had been informed that she was going to receive the ultimate honor in the game with induction this fall in the Hall of Fame.
