1952 Banks-Tinsley match

Does anyone have the official match book from this match?

I've noticed some inconsistencies with the Aurora database and what is given in Solid Checkers. The easiest example is the first win where it shows that Tinsley won with the White side, but it is a clear Red win on the board.

Tinsley won game 9 of their match with the Black(red) pieces.

Another error in some of the databases is in Game 5 of the Tinsley v Chinook match 1992.
Tinsley won this game as White, but the database accredits Chinook as White, in error.

Are the other games in that 1952 match correct? Several of the games that were draws are showing opposite colors than what Solid Checkers gives.

I have looked at the old OCA archive of games and the first 18 games from the Banks - Tinsley match have the colours the wrong way round, also game 33.
The remaining games appear to be ok.

I do not have Solid Checkers to validate. Best idea is if someone sends me the corrected PDN to generate html from.
