Wordless Wednesday - Howard Hunt and Basketball Team

Fairfax HS Basketball - 1922
This photo is of the Fairfax High School Basketball team in 1922. Howard Hunt is in the front row, 2nd from the left. The game ball says "FAIRFAX 1922". I am speculating that this is Fairfax, South Dakota based on the fact that Howard's sister Thelma (Hunt) Brassfield lived near Fairfax, SD in the early 1920s (approx 1921-1923). Howard may have lived with them or vice versa.

Howard H. Hunt was born November 3, 1907 to John and Jennie (Johnson) Hunt. He died October 12, 1941. He was buried at Coleridge Public Cemetery, Cedar County, Nebraska.

He is connected to the Brassfield surname through his sister, Thelma Sarah Hunt. She married Floyd Gipson Brassfield. This makes Howard Hunt my great grand uncle.
