A Boxer from Skaneateles

“He used a left jab that made Geismer think of home and mother every time it landed.”

“Our local knockout drop clearly outpointed George Guzzo of Oswego.”

“I am as hard and rugged as a grizzly bear.”

— Two sports writers and their subject, Jack Feeney, quoted in Don Stinson’s Jack Feeney of Skaneateles: His Professional Boxing Career, 1908-1915 (1983). My thanks to the Skaneateles Historical Society for the opportunity to view this rare item.
