Wilbert “Feeley” Aderman and a Basketball Championship

March 3, 2017

As we prepare for the upcoming March Madness, my cousin and genealogy buddy, Kevin Hackett, author of Our Family Genealogies, sent me some articles he had collected over the years about our Uncle Feeley as a star basketball player in Altamont, Illinois in 1923. Enjoy these newspaper articles celebrating his accomplishments as “the star of the Altamont team.”

    There is a picture of this team hanging in Luke’s tavern in Altamont. I’ll try to get a ‘phone pic of it and send it to you.
