The following is an extract from an undated newspaper article:

"Melvil Mucklestone, son of John Muckleston of Pewaukee and brother of District Attorney Milo Mucklestone, has been elected captain of the football team of the University of Washington, and member of the All-Northwest team, which will in the spring make a trip to Japan. Melvil Mucklestone is a freshman in the University of Washington, and an election of a freshman to the football captaincy is without precedent and is a tribute to Mr Mucklestone's prowess in the game.

Never has the position been given to a collegian ranking lower than a second semester sophomore, Mucklestone's excellent work, however during the last season has given him the place.

Mucklestone is a strong man and is popular with the students as well as with the squad. He should be one of the Northwest college stars in the backfield next year.

Melvil Mucklestone is only 19 years old and weighs something over 180 pounds. He graduated from St John's Military Academy two years ago, entered Milo Mucklestones law office in this city for a little while, and then went to Dakota, where he entered the state agricultural college at Fargo and played on the football team. He then decided to go further west, and to study forestry. Last winter he spent in a lumber camp in Washington, preparatory to his college work, and this fall entered the University of Washington, taking the forestry course. The coach at once spotted him and put him on the team, to whom presidency he has just been chosen."

Went to University of Washington in Seattle in 1908
