Big Moose Meyer

Big Moose Meyer




1937-38 Kankakee Gallagher Trojans (NBL)

American Indian player, brother of Little Moose Meyer. Went to Gallagher Business School. No other information found. Since there is a prevalence of Kickapoo Indians in the area, he may have been a member of that tribe.

Warren Times from January 14, 1938 mentions Big Moose was 6'7. His name is spelled Myer in the article.

He is possibly Donald Eugene Meyer (April 22, 1910 - November 10, 2000). Need to confirm. Obituary appears in Kankakee Daily Journal on Nov 12, 2000.
