Roger Treat had a guy named 'Pat' Dunn listed as a back on the 1920 Detroit

Heralds. The NFL Encyclopedia has him as Patrick Dunne, a fullback, but not

much else. There is a newspaper article from Indiana, Pennsylvania from 1915

which mentioned a former Washington, Pennsylvania high school star, who

was playing fullback for the Heralds in Detroit.  His name was Earl Dunn. 

His obituary mentioned he was a pro-football pioneer who had played for the

Detroit Heralds 30 years ago. The birth data is from his 1942 draft card.
