October 22, 1910: Did Wabash Win?

Ralph Wilson was a Wabash football player who was fatally injured during a Wabash football game with St. Louis on October 22, 1910. The Wabash student newspaper, The Bachelor, reported on October 29 that Wilson was unconscious when he was transported back to the hotel where the team was staying but woke up, asking “Did Wabash win?”

You can read all about Wabash's football fatality in the book Hidden History of Montgomery County, written by CDPL staff Jodie Wilson, Rebecca McDole, and Emily Griffin (2012) -- and available in the library to borrow or purchase. Take a peek at the book in Google Books!
