This is supposedly a picture of my great grandpa William Howard Furnier. Not the best of pictures as it's a scan of a negative of a picture of a picture, but it's the only one I have of him in boxing mode. He boxed in Cincinnati and I've heard that he was known as Kid Howard. I found a records site online that lists a Kid Howard in Cincinnati who boxed between 1916-1924, and the first match was in the town by where he grew up so it must be him.
Can anyone recommend good websites or books on early 20th century boxing? I'm not really looking for stories on specific boxers, but something general. I know *nothing* about boxing and would really like to know more.
