Photo Number 2399

This is a snapshot from the shop in Pequot Lakes Minnesota.
Bill Matheny
This is Bill Matheny.  I believe this photo was taken in 1936 when he played for The Minnesota Golden Gophers. 
Bill (William) went to High School in Anoka Minnesota and was an All State Player as a Half back in 1933.
I think he was born December 29, 1916 and died Feb 26, 1999.  His wife was June Butts Matheny 1920-2010 and they had one child Merri.  They owned a business in Anoka for many years.
Thanks for stopping by.
