Ted Meisel

A football and basketball player, Teddy went to CCNY (and missed one year of school for reasons unknown) and played one season with the Hakoahs. He died in 1955 at the young age of 48.

I wasn't too certain on his identity until I found his brother, Leo's, suicide in the papers in 1927. There was a lot of news coverage given to youth suicides at that time, and one article from Brainerd, of all places, mentioned Leo's brother was the athlete from CCNY. Ancestry.com filled in the rest.

Teddy and his wife, Ruth (1909-2007), had four sons and a daughter.
