1 1968 NLA 50 Years Ago: The National Lacrosse Asso article
"In 1968, the National Lacrosse Association began play. Fifty years ago, box lacrosse had its first truly international, major league—and the first to actually survive long enough to crown a champion. Notwithstanding the failures of the 1930s, the movers and shaker behind the NLA decided that the time was right for professional box lacrosse, and got to work setting up a circuit.

And, consistent with the times, it was mostly about television money."

2 1968 NLA Setting The Stage for the NLA's Debut 50 article
"Morely Kells, an advertising executive with some hockey accounts, started the Toronto Maple Leafs Senior Amateur box lacrosse team in 1966. In short order, he had dreams of a professional box lacrosse circuit. To that end, he scheduled a game against the Oshawa Green Gaels, and invited some NHL executives to the match.

Bruce Norris, owner of the Detroit Red Wings, attended the game and liked what he saw. He told Kells he was in if there was a pro boxla league, but only if the other American NHL cities (of which there were four at the time) would join in. Owners from the Boston Bruins and Chicago Black Hawks had some interest but would not commit, and the New York Rangers declined, as the new Madison Square Garden was in the middle of being built. Norris then agreed that, if the two Canadian NHL teams would at least join the league, he would enter a Detroit team."

The Week That Was In The National Lacrosse Association: May 8-15, 1968

On May 5, 1968, the National Lacrosse Association season opened with the Detroit Olympics defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs, 10-8, behind two Doug Favell goals and a dominant performance from Gaylord Powless.

The league survived to play the next week—which was no small feat, given the performance of the four professional boxla circuits of the 1930s.

The Week That Was In The National Lacrosse Association: May 16-23, 1968

The third week of the National Lacrosse Association’s season found the league still trying to find its footing among a sporting public that was still in hockey mode, particularly as the Montreal Canadiens had just finished winning the Stanley Cup in four games decided by one goal against the expansion St. Louis Blues. The first year of the National Hockey League’s Great Expansion had been a great success, and the finals provided a thrilling capstone to the 1968 season. Although the Blues were swept, the goaltending of Glenn Hall nearly stole the series, and “Mr. Goalie” became just the second player from a losing team to win the Conn Smythe Award as playoff MVP.

Still, there was box lacrosse to be played…the NLA kept playing it.

The Week That Was In The National Lacrosse Association: May 24-31, 1968

The last week of May in 1968 found the newly-minted National Lacrosse Association completing its first month, and already a number of compelling figures began to emerge.

In keeping with the NLA’s desire to be viewed as “summer hockey,” much early-season attention was focused on a player considered to be the league’s Bobby Orr—19 year old phenom Ross Jones of the Detroit Olympics.

On May 25, Jones was in the unique position of leading two leagues in goal scoring—besides pacing the NLA with 10 goals in 5 games, young Ross was also heading up the Ontario Junior A league with 19 goals in 5 games playing with Detroit’s de facto farm team, the Oshawa Green Gaels.

6 Other Lacrosse The Birth of Box Lacrosse article
"Here in Philly, box lacrosse has a history that goes back almost 45 years. But what of the game itself? Where does box lacrosse come from?

In the United States, field lacrosse remains the dominant version of the game. This was also the case in Canada for decades. Both countries were happy to embrace the game that was called the “little brother of war” by Native Americans, and the sport thrived in North America in the 19th century.

In 1931, a new version of the game arrived. “Box lacrosse” was an altered form of the outdoor game, played with fewer men per side on a smaller surface—not coincidentally, often the size of a hockey rink."

"The ABLL began play in June 1932 with six teams: New York Yankees, playing at Yankee Stadium; New York Giants, playing at the Polo Grounds; Brooklyn Dodgers, playing at Ebbets Field; Boston Shamrocks, holding games at Fenway Park; Toronto Maple Leafs, playing at Maple Leaf Stadium; and Baltimore Rough Riders, playing at Oriole Park. Games were played in the evening, under the lights."

Go West,Stickmen: The Pacific Coast Lacrosse Association of 1939

"In late 1938, plans were announced for the creation of an indoor lacrosse league which would play games in the winter at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. But why a box lacrosse league, given the rapid collapse of the American Pro Box Lacrosse League six years earlier and the similar failure of a Midwest league in 1934? For that matter, why California, which did not have a deep history with the game at that time?"

47 1932 Larry Power notes re Judy Garlow (Punch) scrapbook
Very little has been known about the beginning of box lacrosse, other than in 1931 and 1932 there was a professional box league in Canada.

From Judy 'Punch' Garlow's scrapbook there also must have been a pro league that played in the States in 1932 and 1933 at the very least. In 1932 the Atlantic City Americans played a number of games against American clubs. Was this indeed an organized schedule or were these exhibition games.

The pro league continued in 1933 in the States while the Canadian pro league folded in Canada. Mention is made of a pro team from Brampton in 1933 with Ted Large in net but I don't believe Large played for Brampton team in the O.A.L.A. senior A series in 1933. I have to visit with Judy Punch again to get some more questions answered.
