Listening to CBC Radio. Playing interview from players’ dressing rooms prior to 1947 Grey Cup game between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts. Interviewer is Monte Hall. Mention made that Beef Carr-Harris won’t be able to play the game. “Beef”, otherwise known as Phil Carr-Harris, had to miss the 1947 Grey Cup game because he was writing his examinations to become a Chartered Accountant. At that time, there were different exam levels. He must have ended up passing them all, since he is mentioned in a 1951 issue of the Canadian Chartered Accountant.
Can’t find much about him afterwards.
So he made a choice. Still considered to be a member of the winning team.
