Wayne State Teachers’ College Postcard 1940

Football WSTC pc


According to her note on the reverse, this card was sent to my Aunt Barb November 3, 1940.  It seems reasonable that the players and  schedule are from the 1940 season, but it doesn’t say that.  It was sent in an envelope, so there is no postmark.

The players across the top L-R:  Lindahl “Joe”, R. Garvin, W. Best, R. Childs, F. Murray, H. Purtzer, E. Theel, D Hungerford, Q. Fox, H. Morgan, C. Wehrer, V. Smith.

In the middle: Morrison “Head Coach”, “JIM”, Chrry “Asst Coach”, and “BINK”

Bottom Row L-R:  B. Splichal, L. Mullens, M. Gailey, C. Garvin, F. Webb, K. Spann, T. Farner, A. Killian, J. Riley, D. Peterson, A. Mitchell, S. Juzek,  E. Nitz.

It’s fun to see that admission to any of the games was 40¢.
