Question 1

The Cleveland Browns have had 4 major ownership groups in their history. Art (Mickey) McBride founded the Browns in 1945. He then sold about half of his shaers to Saul Silberman in 1953. Silberman then sold the team to a New York group headed by Aurther B. Modell in 1961. Modell left town in 1995, and the Browns were then reformed by Al Lerner.
There has been one group, however, that has retained an ownership in the Browns from 1946 all the way until the Baltimore move, when they sold their interest in protest. Who was the head of that group?
