1906 Canton bulldogs picture

The player/coach of the team was the guy named Wallace, in the back row. His full name was Charles Edgar Wallace, but he was universally known then as "Blondy" Wallace. He was quite a celebrity back then, and a great footballer, at 6'2" and 240 lbs. He was (falsely) accused of trying to fix a late 1906 season series of two games between his Canton Bulldogs and the Massillon Tigers, their biggest rivals and the three -time Ohio League champions. Wallace left football shortly thereafter and became a bootlegger in New Jersey (serving time in federal prison) in the 1930s and then moved west and became a bootlegger in Vancouver, B.C., in Canada.
