Chester Noyes Bulger (September 18, 1917 – February 18, 2009) was an offensive tackle in the National Football League for the Chicago Cardinals. Bulger was born in Rumford, Maine, and after graduating from Stephen's High School, he attended Auburn University on a track and field scholarship, where he then walked onto the football team. Bulger played for the Chicago Cardinals from 1942–1949, where he was part of the All-Pro offensive line that helped lead the Cardinals to the NFL Championship in 1947. After retiring from football in 1951, Bulger remained in Chicago and became a teacher, coach, and eventual athletic director at De La Salle Institute. He remained there until 1982 and was subsequently an integral member of the school's development office into the early 1990s. In 2007, De La Salle honored Bulger's contributions to the school by renaming the main athletic field in his honor.
Bulger died of natural causes on February 18, 2009, at his home in Fairfax, Virginia. He was 91.
