DEAN WILLIAMS FALLS AND DIES

Accident Fatal to Noted U. of W. Football Star of 50 Years Ago
Dean Williams, 68, Milwaukee representative of the Erie Forge Co., who was a football great at the University of Wisconsin 50 years ago, was fatally injured in a fall at the Liederkranz cafe, 779 N. Front st., shortly before midnight Thursday.

After attending the Milwaukee "W" club dinner at the Athletic club Thursday night, he went to the cafe with several friends. Opening a door that he believed led to a washroom, he tumbled down basement steps. His skull was fractured in the fall and he died at the county emergency hospital an hour later.

Played in 1891-92

Mr. Williams was the only letterman of 50 years ago in the "W" club, at which he was one of the founders. He played end on the 1891-92 teams. He never lost his interest in university athletics, seldom missing a football or basketball game at Madison. He was among the Wisconsin rooters who watched the Badgers win the national collegiate basketball championship at Kansas City last year.

Members of the "W" club recalled Friday that he had been absent only once from the club dinner-meetings in many years. That was last April when his associates secretly planned to present him with a diamond studded "W" in token of his fiftieth anniversary as a letter winner. He learned of it in advance and, as one member put it, "ducked out of town."
Former Purchasing Agent

Mr. Williams, who lived at 3426 N. Cramer st., was formerly purchasing agent for the A.O. Smith Corp. and assistant purchasing agent for the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Co. He was a member of the Old Settlers', Elks and Athletic clubs.
