Looking for my old Friend, George Reider from Gloucester City

Dear Bill,

Trying to locate old friend and Camden Industrial League (RCA BMEWS), Gloucester City Memorial AA basketball team mate George Reider.

We played many years ago (1960's) with the above teams. 

Though from Camden, I was "recruited" by Rudy and younger (but bigger) brother Bob "Ish" Weichmann to play with the Mustangs. 

Relations with my friends from the Camden Y were never quite the same.

It seems your "Cleary's Notebook" is the only place I've been able to find a possible mention of George.


I dug up and attached this old clipping I’ve had since 1962 to authenticate my credentials re Geo and B-ball.

Geo might also be interested to know that I still can hit a “trey from the top of the key” and was wondering if he could boast the same!

Any info appreciated.

John H. Block
