Morrie Lux (sometimes spelled "Maurie" and "Morris") was part of a group of boxers that Tacoma's Eddie Tait, part owner of Manila's Olympia Club, took to the Philippine Islands in late 1919 to help promote the sport there. Dec. 17 Tacoma News Tribune

Lux was one of the thirty members who formed the Seattle Boxing Association on Feb. 18, 1930, in Room 104, Labor Temple, Seattle. The first elected officers were President Jim Malone, Vice-President Bill Bethal, Secretary Red Gage, "Inner Guard" Ike Cohen, and a committee of Mike Pete, Lux, Frankie Rogers and Irving Gleason was appointed to look up club rooms for future meetings. "Following the session, Malone dined the boys at Boldt's." Seattle Union Record

A photo of Lux can be found in the Feb. 2, 1920 Tacoma News Tribune.
