Golden Gate Exposition 1939

These three fascinating photographs show Irish boxing legend Tom Sharkey as a guest of honour at the Golden Gate International Exposition in 1939.
The fair was held in San Francisco and celebrated, among other things, the city's two newly-built bridges: the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge which had been dedicated in 1936 and the Golden Gate Bridge (1937).
The exposition featured months of events - but what was Sharkey’s role?

Anyone know anymore?
