About Frank S. Butterworth

Frank Seiler Butterworth, Sr. (September 21, 1870 – August 21, 1950) was an All-American football player and coach. Butterworth attended Yale University where he was a fullback on Yale's football teams and a member of the Skull and Bones Society. He was famously enucleated by Bert Waters during "The Bloodbath in Hampden Park". He was selected as an All-American in 1894. Butterworth was also a track star and boxer at Yale. After his college career was over, Butterworth coached football at the University of California (1895–1896) and Yale (1897–1898). The 1897 Yale football team coached by Butterworth went undefeated with two ties – Army and Harvard.

Butterworth worked for the bankers Bertron & Storrs, was a senior partner with real estate brokers F. S. Butterworth & Company, and was president of the New Haven Hotel Company. He served as a Connecticut State Senator from 1907 to 1909 and was a Second Lieutenant in the Chemical Warfare Service during World War I. Butterworth died in his sleep at age 79 in Connecticut.
