Born to Max and Celia Gussin, Carl went to Central HS where he played basketball and tennis. He attended Alma and in 1929 was involved in an automobile accident that injured his knee and he missed the remainder of the season. After graduating, he went on to the University of Detroit to go to dental school. While finishing up dental school, he played pro basketball with the Hed-Aids in the MBC. He served in the U.S. Army during World War 2.

He married Bertha Weinstein in 1946 and they had one daughter.

There is another Carl Gussin in the Detroit area roughly the same age who went to Wayne State and then got his law degree at the University of Michigan. He is a different guy and not the basketball player.

Not sure about the birthdate. Year seems good, but date itself is unconfirmed.
