This is a great and very informative article. Thanks for the exceptional research and collaboration. As Curator Emeritus at the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center in Wilberforce, I am especially excited to see the photo of the Wilberforce team and references to the Arnett family and Sol White. If the owner of the photograph consents might you be willing to provide contact information? Thanks again.

Gary... thanks for doing the research. By the way, the gentleman pictured in the Wilberforce photo is the first cousin once removed of P D Arnett. P D Arnett's father Ephraim and Rev. Benjamin Arnett Sr's (the father of the Wilberforce player) father Samuel were brothers.

Also, I'm pretty sure the Arnett pictured with Wilberforce photo is Alphonso T Arnett. The first letter of his first name is printed just like the "A" in the last name, Arnett.
