Historical Photo - 1922

 As it is almost tourney time, here is a photo of the 1922-23 Buicks basketball team, reputed to be the best basketball team ever taking the floor for Calais. In those days there were what we would call semipro teams and the Buicks were one of the best in the State. They went undefeated in the 1922-23 season, beating teams from Bangor, Belfast, Houlton, Woodstock, Orono and Ellsworth. The team included Albert Jensen, Bud Silva, Ray Foley, Philip Dresser, Burnham Stanley and Emmon Ivery.  The manager was Jack Woodman who also served several terms as mayor of Calais.  Albert Jensen went on to become the Chief of Police.
