Default 1906 Chief Meyers - Anyone else got early Meyers photos?

A recent find that I thought could be of interest to some. Chief Meyers in 1906 at Dartmouth College. Although he never played an actual game at Dartmouth he did participate in spring training in 1906. Not sure there is another photo taken during his time at Dartmouth, so this is pretty cool.

Also in the photo (of no less interest) is HOF Tommy McCarthy, Dartmouth coach 1906-07.

Meyers is standing, second from left. McCarthy is in the middle row, third from left.

If anyone has any other early Meyers photos, post!

By the way, the story of Meyers' discovery by Dartmouth baseball and football star Ralph Glaze is pretty great. Shenanigans abound. There is a short sketch of it in this SABR story about Glaze, about halfway down the page:

https://sabr.org/journal/article/the...d-him-pitcher/

Glaze went on to pitch for the Boston Red Sox 1906-08.

Default Awesome find!

As a Meyers collector, I was curious as to whether he was ever pictured in a Dartmouth photo. Thanks for sharing!

The local Riverside California paper periodically will print an article about Chief Meyers because he's a local boy that made good. Here's a picture of his Riverside High School baseball team which includes "Jack" Meyers, seated in the second row, second from left. The photo is circa 1896.
Meyers returned to this area and became a police chief for the Mission Indian Agency in 1933. Meyers often attended old timers’ games for the Dodgers and the Giants, especially after those teams moved to California. He died in July 1971 and is buried in Bloomington’s Green Acres Cemetery.

This is an early photo of two "Chiefs". It is John Tortes “Chief” Meyers (left) of the New York Giants and Albert “Chief” Bender of the Philadelphia A’s at the 1911 World Series. (Photo: Library of Congress)

How many catchers caught both Matty and Walter? Maybe just one. The Chief also caught Johnson in a 1909 exhibition game.

My only Meyers photo..it's from the Baseball Magazine archives. If anyone knows the photographer I'd appreciate the info. Also of note this appears to be the image used for his 1911 Turkey Red cabinet.
