Ted St. Germaine died of a heart attack at his home on the Flambeau Indian
Reservation. He was 37 years old by the time he started his professional football
career with the 1922 Oorang Indians.
He was one of three men from the Ojibwe reservation at Lac du Flambeau that
played for the Oorang Indians, the others being Jim Thorpe, Alex Bobidosh and
George Vetternack. St. Germaine became a tribal judge and, in 1932, was the
first Native American admitted to the bar in the state of Wisconsin.
