Edgar Kennedy the film actor

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am doing research for a book on Edgar "slowburn" Kennedy who lived in San Francisco 1900-1910 as a boy. Does anyone know where I can find out where he went to high school? He was a Golden Gloves champ in 1909 then went professional, any resources?

This page has a listing of his children. Perhaps you could track down his history through them or their relatives:


You've probably already done this, but putting his name into google gets 7+ pages of hits, many of which are fan sites. You'll probably enjoy reading through them.
