Wisden obituary

Stollmeyer, Victor Humphrey, who died on September 21, 1999, aged 83, scored 96 in his only Test innings for West Indies. Vic Stollmeyer was a Trinidadian right-hander and a last-minute selection for the last Test match before the war, at The Oval in 1939. According to his younger brother Jeff, he had been told he was not playing and so went out on the town the night before the game. Luckily, West Indies fielded first. When West Indies did bat, Vic Stollmeyer ran out George Headley, but stayed out there to put on 163 in 100 minutes with Bam Bam Weekes, scoring his runs in what Wisden called perfect style in just two and a quarter hours. By the time West Indies played another Test, his career was over; Jeff, however, went on to become captain.
