Re: The L.C. Smith Trophy
Maybe some one can help me sort out an answer surrounding the L C Smith Trophy that was evidently won by Gilbert before 1905, the year the picture was taken. Attempting to provide an answer to Kim's question I checked Eaton's records that Drew posted above for the Smith Trophy. According to Eaton the Trophy was awarded 9 times to Rollo Heikes and never to Gilbert during the 22 years that it was awarded. Although Eaton provides some detail about each trophy year he must have been mistaken in omitting Gilbert. Was there more than one Smith Trophy; the one in the picture says Clay Birds; was there another trophy for live birds?
