The last major historical update I think I will ever make — the span of seasons from 1894 to 1919 — has been made. In all, 189 additional games have been added to the database. All the updates have been made on all the relevant pages.
Finding these 189 games was some of the toughest research I have ever done, especially when you consider the format of late 19th and early 20th century newspapers. Locating games was at times like hunting for a tiny needle in a huge haystack. I make no claim that the 189 games I have uploaded are a complete list of the games played from 1894 to 1919; it’s just the best I can do right now with what I have available.
What now? Well, now I continue to fill in the holes where I have information missing. The missing games list and the Coaches Project are good places to start. I’m also attempting to verify all bye weeks listed here and have got a nice jump on that research, as well.
In short, this is not the “end.”
In addition to the years 1894 to 1919, I also fixed a mistake I noticed for St. Stephens — I corrected the Eagles’ record in 1964 to 6-2, not 5-2 as I had listed — and took some names off the Coaches Project list for Cowley and University Prep.
