Eddie Sachs

Edwin Richard Sachs

February 11, 1918
Chicago, IL

July 15, 1996
Lake Zurich, IL

1939-40 DePaul University (College)
1940-41 DePaul University (College)
1941-42 Chicago Bruins (NBL)

There is another Edwin Sachs from Missouri (1920-1986), but nothing I found puts him in Chicago. This one seemed a better fit, so I just went about confirmation.
Doing a search on his brother, I found Henry's obituary which showed he played basketball at Illinois.
I feel pretty confident about this ID.

Born to Polish immigrants Edward and Mary Sachs,  Ed played at DePaul and then the Chicago Bruins in the NBL.
