Clipping:An early sighting of John Brush
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Wednesday, January 5, 1887|
[following up on a letter by a collection of Indianapolis businessmen to Spalding about buying the Kansas City franchise] The gentlemen interested are all well-known business men, who represent wealth amounting to over two million dollars. They are also of a character that will assure success in the venture. J. B. Brush is a partner and manager of “The When Clothing Company,” a mammoth concern which is a pride of the city. Mr. B. is a man of sterling business qualities, and has a reputation of being a “hustler” in anything and everything he undertakes. If the franchise is purchased Mr. Brush will, in all probability, be made president of the club.
