And you wonder why I love research... serendipity leads me to a copy of the newspaper article with the identities of the 1946-47 basketball team

In the process of looking for some other information, I found an online source for a copy of the page in the February 19, 1947 Wisconsin State Journal that includes the photograph of the Madison Central High School basketball team (shown in the previous post) -- and identifies all the players in the photo.

First row (left to right): Pat McCann, Al Dockery, Mel Troia, Bill Withers, Allen Sweet, Frank Fellows, and Keith Tipler

Second row (left to right): Robert Gesme, James Weaver, Robert Schaeffer, Alvin Starck, Robert Ziesch, James Wilcox, Ken Sticha, Don Gasser, and Coach Robert Alwin.

And for those of you who want even more details, I was able to download a copy of the page from the Wisconsin State Journal and save it as a PDF. If you'd like to read the whole page, you may download it by clicking on THIS LINK.
