Shad Link, 1950s Strongman


“This is a Newspaper account back in the early 50’s. My Uncle gave me this when I was a Kid. Frank “Shad” Link was a relative who was quite a personality. He at one time wrestled at the White House for Teddy Roosevelt . His son was killed at St.Mary’s in a snow sled accident saving the life of George Herman Ruth . Have all this information in newspaper files . He mainly hung around Essex at was at my Grandmom’s home on Delaware Ave. Heard many a story about him from my Aunts and Uncle’s.” — Bobby from Essex
