On one of these occasions, I was asked to pick up two pairs of guns which had been donated to the university by Mr. Harvey Foster, a graduate of the law school who went with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and later became head of the FBI's New York office.
Still later, after retiring from the FBI, Mr. Foster became a vice-president of American Airlines, operating out of that firm's Chicago regional office.
While with the FBI in New York, Agent Foster was instrumental in the capture of seven would-be saboteurs who had landed in a rubber raft on the east coast after having disembarked a German submarine off the coast.
All seven were captured within a nine day span.
Obviously, Mr. Foster took great pride in this accomplishment, just as he did his education and graduation from Notre Dame.
Both phases of his life were memorialized in 24 karat gold inscriptions on the handles of one of the pairs of guns he donated, a pair of 357 magnums, which he had custom made for himself while with the FBI.
Each gun handle contained seven inscriptions of some valued phase of his life, such as the American flag, the Golden Dome, his FBI agent's number, his football jersey number from Notre Dame and others, including the life raft landing saboteurs on the beach.
In so doing, they passed up the file cabinet which contained Mr. Foster's
two pairs of guns, one of them valued at six thousand dollars, in an unlocked drawer.
Chicago Tribune | Coach appreciation
Most of the boys on both teams have been coached , at some point in their young lives , by Harvey Foster , who has been the head or assistant coach at both schools and who has run the Huskie Baseball School in Arlington Heights ( now affiliated with the Arlington Heights Park District ) for many years.His
ability to pass along his
knowledge of the game and to teach baseball skills are exemplary , as has been proven by the number of his
former students who have played successfully in college and on minor and major professional teams.
In fact , he
was honored in 1999 by the Illinois High School Baseball Coaches Association
as their man of the year because of his
outstanding contribution to high school baseball.
Let's give credit where credit is due--to Coach Foster
and others like him who dedicate their lives to teaching children to be successful on the sports field and in life.
