Here Keith is posing in his basketball uniform. This was probably taken next to their house in Spokane. When I learned he played basketball I was very intrigued because he was not a tall man. I heard however, that he was quick.
You can see that he is wearing the same uniform in the picture below, with his classmates. Keith is in the back row second from the right. The right top tip of the banner is pointing to him.
My father probably would have made a good genealogist because several of his group photos have the names on the back in what looks like the person’s own handwriting. I count nine names and there are nine in the photo. We do not know in what order the names are written or who is whom. Still it is so cool that he did this and sought their autographs. Some of the writing was cut off unfortunately.
The names are Burt Hutton, Center; George Cormier, R. Guard; Hugh L. Neubert, Mgr.; Charles Vass, LG; Milton Hirsch Jr., Forward; Jack Shields, L. Forward cpt.; Maurice Black, Left Guard; Obde Edwards, R. Forward; and J. J. Kennedy.
In the next photo Keith is left from the young man holding the trophy and the fourth man in. He has his hand holding the banner and he is in a white long-sleeved shirt. This is in his sophomore year which would be about 1927 to 1928. He is not in the lower picture.
It reads Above: Sophomore “B”, Champions of the Senior division of Interclass Basketball League.
