Hey guys,

I was going through the 1887 Yale Pot-Pourri (yearbook) and noticed this photo of the 1886 Yale football team. George Alvin Watkinson's photo was altered on this team photograph too (bottom right). Watkinson was considered one of the best football players in the country in 1885 and 86. He came down with an illness prior to the last game of the 1886 season against Princeton. Although he played well he died a few weeks later. I wonder if the individual in the photo was just a stand-in all along. Any thoughts?


Here is my team photo (also altered) along with a single photo of Watkinson from my 1889 Pach Yearbook.

Here's the picture from Intercollegiate Football 1869-1934 - not sure if that's a different person front right

Thanks Rev. Tough to tell if he is the same guy, but I think it is (see below). Both team photos were taken at the same sitting. I once thought it was William Graves, but I'm wrong. Any idea who that is? He definitely wasn't a starter. Couldn't be too thrilled that his photo was being covered up.

Spot on Rev. I wonder who the guy on the left is? I think he is the same guy who was covered up on my 1886 team photo (back row, fifth from the right). You can see that Watkinson's head was glued onto that photo too.

Thanks Rev. Very interesting. Clearly that isn't Watkinson.

George Robert Carter was a lettermen from 1886 who is not listed as being in the 1886 picture. He is listed in the 1887 picture standing next to Corbin - he might be our man. A Major in WW I he was later Governor of Hawaii
