1943: Middletown Veteran is Twice Injured

Middletown, Jan. 16 (Special): Gerald McCarthy, veteran court performer, ran into double trouble the past week that threatened to put a halt to his basketball days. Tuesday night in the YMCA-Alumni game, he suffered an injury to his instep which forced him home for a few days, and Friday night he slipped on Main Street while walking up town and two stitches were needed at the Crescent Street Hospital to close the wound in the back of his head.

From the Hartford Courant, Jan. 17, 1943.
