TWO YALE UNIVERSITY ICE HOCKEY PLAYERS (1936 PRESS PHOTO)

This vintage press photo is from 1936 and features two Yale University ice hockey players. The player on the left is named Blake Shepard and his hometown was St. Paul, Minnesota. Blake played the position of left defenseman. The player on the right is identified as Edward Pillsbury who hailed from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Edward played the wing position. Both Shepard and Pillsbury played hockey only one year (1935/36) at Yale. Shepard had more success on the ice than Pillsbury. Shepard is mentioned several time in the Yale Daily News. He earned praise for his “standout” performance at defense in a game against US Olympic Team candidates (12/9/35). Shepard started a game against Clarkson (1/23/36). He scored a goal and earned an assist in a 9-2 win over Brown University (2/20/36). Review of the Yale newspaper seems to indicate that Shepard also played football and baseball there. An internet search yielded no information about Pillsbury’s collegiate hockey career, other than him being on Yale’s hockey team (35/36) roster. This vintage photograph once belonged to Brown Brothers, a major stock photo agency. It was established in 1904 and built an archive of over one million photographs and negatives. This hockey press photo has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition (see scans).

pretty austere_0004This cabinet card portrait of a pretty and fashionable young woman is the work of G. W. Pach.

Pach’s studio at the time of this photograph was located at 841 Broadway at the corner of 13th Street in New York City. Pach also had branch studios at Harvard and Yale Universities as well as in Poughkeepsie and West Point, New York. In addition, there were branch studios in Long Branch and Ocean Grove, New Jersey. The aforementioned studios are all mentioned in print on the reverse of the cabinet card. Also on the back of the image is a pencilled date indicating that this photograph was taken in 1879.
