Responsibility of Loss
By Michigan Team
William Dennlson Clark, who
committed suicide here Tuesday
la a local hotel, gained national
attention as an athlete a quarter
of a century ago when he shoul
dered the sole responsibility for
the loaa of a famous football
game. Facts which came to light
here Wednesday and possessions
la Clark's room at the time of his
death, revealed this circumstance.
Denny Clark, as he was better
known 23 years ago when he won
fame on the gridiron as a member
of the team coached by the fam
ous Fielding H. Tost, threw away
a battle against life as he lost a
football game In 1905. He killed
himself In order that a family,
which he admitted In a suicide
letter Ac his wife, might benefit
by his final play.
Denny Clark may be remem
bered by followers of football
lore as the man "who lost that
game to Chicago 2 to 0 in 1905".
Clark, It Is shown in documents

Denny Clark, Michigan alumni

Michigan to lose its first game in
Identification of Clark was
