Going to try to make this a regular feature.

In this clipping (click to enlarge), from January 1, 1916, the Indianapolis Freeman reprints a short piece from the Manila Times informing Philippines readers about Charleston’s whereabouts. Oscar had left the islands in March 1915, when he was 18 years old. Apparently he was not too young to have left quite an impression on the local baseball fans.

Also, no one is naming their kids Nimrod anymore. Pity.
