Warren Hair

Warren Ray Hair

July 18, 1918 
Chicago, IL

December 21, 2006
Houston, TX

1934-35 St Anne High School - Illinois (High School)
1935-36 St Anne High School - Illinois (High School)
Gallagher Business School (College)
1937-38 Kankakee Gallagher Trojans (NBL) 

Found a Warren Ray Hair, born in July 18, 1918. That makes him very young to play for Kankakee, but not impossible. This particular gentleman Hair, his parents are Percy (1893-1964) and Mabel, sister is Alice (who may have married Fred Shumway). Lived in Urbana, Illinois, in 1940, working as a salesman at a grocer, and residing in the house of George and Della Tracy

I did find that Warren Hair played basketball at St Anne High School in 1936. This matches the Warren Hair born in 1919 as far as both basketball skill and age. Perhaps he did not attend Gallagher Business School (or at least maybe only for one school year). I feel fairly certain this is the same guy. Died in Houston in 2006.

Warren Hair is indeed the Warren Ray Hair listed above. World War 2 veteran.
