Boyle's Black Devils

Chicago, IL








Contributor:    Beth Rasmussen    (    23 October 2005


"My father-in-law William "Bill" Rasmussen played football when he was young
for a team in Chicago called "Boyles Black Devils". The organizer of the
group was John Boyle who later became a Judge in the Chicago circuit court.
I am sending a picture of the team when some of the Rasmussens played on it.
I hope you can use it somehow. Included in the picture is Pete Spoo, Arnold
Rasmussen, Bill Rasmussen, and Elmer Rasmussen. John Boyle is wearing a
hat in the back."
