It also could be that a few indoor tournaments were yet played on clay as it was true with the 1959 Vienna indoor event.

In Florida there were many claycourt events.

Rosewall once told me that the Oklahoma tourney was played on har-tru which is green clay, as far as I know.

Thanks for your research!
I denied that the Cannes Palais de Sport could be indoor clay, because it was a multi-sport venue. They cannot roll out the clay and lay down a track.
This puts Hoad ahead of Rosewall lifetime on clay, by the way, a great achievement.
