Helen Stephens with the All American Redheads

After Helen Stephens returned from the 1936 Olympics, she began playing basketball with the All American Red Heads.  The Red Heads were a team composed completely of women with red hair.  Mind you most of it was dyed red, including Helens.  They would travel around and take on local mens teams in front of sell out crowds at venues such as high school and college gymnasiums.  They would make it a show too! 

Oh by the way this is another illustration for the Helen Stevens volume of the Notable Missourian series to be published by Truman State University Press.  Awesome pepes there!

Anyways, I think my brain was being sneaky with this one.  Without realizing it I put the only bona fide looking redhead on the opposing mens team.   

More soon.
