Charles H. "Bud" Edwards '30, a fine all-around halfback and captain of the 1929 Bruins, was the first Brown man to participate in the East-West game. Coach Tuss McLaughry used Edwards largely as a blocking back, but the Chicago native was also a consistent ground gainer off the tackles and a good passer. In the 13-12 victory over Princeton in 1929, the 5-11, 178-pound halfback scored both Bruin touchdowns. When Coach McLaughry selected his all-time Brown team, he placed Edwards at one of the halfback positions opposite Irving "Shine" Hall '39. Edwards was president of his senior class, chairman of the junior prom, and a member of Phi Kappa Psi. After playing pro football with the Providence Steam Rollers of the National Football League, Edwards went into business. He's now president of Edwards Realty Corp., Fort Wayne, Indiana.
