Clyde Anton

Career
1937-38 Columbus Athletic Supply (NBL)


Mansfield News Journal from Feb 27, 1938, lists Anton as an Ohio State graduate. However, Ohio State letterman records do not list a "Clyde Anton" as playing there. Not even a "Clyde" or an "Anton." Part of me wonders if Anton is his middle name, and he used that as his last name instead of his actual last name, which may have been too "ethnic" for the era.

There was a person who was a college professor in the Pennsylvania area named J. Clyde Anton. 

Another possibility is a Clyde Anton, born Sept 19, 1913, in Indiana

Trail seems to lead me to Waterloo, Iowa. He may have gone to Columbia College in Iowa. Is he Philip Shuck Anton?
