  1. I think you have this man's birth/death dates and places mixed with someone else. He may have been actually called Bob HEnshaw. Check out!/Obituary and page 30 (class of 1940) for

    2. The link you posted have the same birth/death info I have. The only difference is I misspelled his name in the title, which I corrected. On-line encyclopedia's still list his name as "Hanshaw." U did, however, correct his middle name.

      I am hoping to clean up more entries as new information and new sources become available. Thank you for taking the time to let me know of this.

    3. Oh, wait. Yes. The birthdate was originally wrong, also. Death date was right. Corrected. Thank you!

  2. I love Peach Basket Society, this as an amazing resource for NBL players. Just figured I'd share some sources I found that can help close the gaps on Bob Han/Henshaw!
