Frank Garrard
(Frank Sheridan Garrard)

BORN   1866; Fought out of Chicago, Illinois
DIED 1941
HEIGHT 5-9
WEIGHT 124-138 lbs
RACE   White; Irish-American

Garrard learned boxing under Harry Gilmore; He fought out of the Chicago stable that produced Jimmy Barry, Harry Forbes, Eddie Santry, Tommy White, Billy Stift and George Kirwin

His style of fighting was a peculiar one and not likely to impress those looking on; He was a rather fancy boxer with good height and reach for his weight; However, he did not take advantage of his physical assets
