Karl Koski - Boston Marathon 1929

  of 186

I am in possession of a silver medal from 1929. It has engraving on the back that indicates it was awarded to the second place finisher of the 1929 Boston Marathon. My research shows that a runner by the name of Karl Koski, came in second that year. The newspaper clippings state that he was sponsored by the Finnish/American club of New York. I also believe that he finished in the top 5 in one or two other Boston Marathons. Does anybody on this distribution list, have any information about this Karl Koski. Thanks!
