Wink Bowman (Hammond) Identified, aka Art Bowman

Thanks to a photo I saw while hunting down Tom O'Toole I was able to ascertain that the player previously listed as Art Bowman is actually W.C. "Wink" Bowman.

Originally listed as Art Bowman, a Hammond team photo I found listed him as "Wink" Bowman. Using the name Wink, I quickly found Wendell C. "Wink" Bowman from Monticello, IN. His obituary said he went to St Joseph's (like the newspaper article about the basketball player named "Wink") and his obituary in the Rensselaer Republican said he played professional basketball. Another mystery player identified.
