Biographical history

Frank Tindall (1908-1993), born in the United States, was "All-American" at Syracuse University. He came north and joined the Toronto Argonauts football team in 1933, later being named to the All-Time Agro Squad (1921-1941). He coached basketball and football at Queen's University from 1939 to his retirement in 1975, a period only interrupted by the Second World War. Tindall led the football Gaels to a total of eight intercollegiate titles and one national championship (1968) in twenty-nine seasons. His coaching record at his retirement stood at 112-84-2, a record number of wins for Canadain college football. He is a member of both the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and the Queen's University Football Hall of Fame. The Frank Tindall trophy is awarded annually to the top Canadain intercollegiate football coach and Tindall Field at Queen's is named in his honour.
