John G. Horgan
Horgan reportedly became the 1906 world champion in pocket billiards (straight pool) by beating Tommy Hueston (misspelt as 'Houston' in his obituary). He became the world three-cushion billiards champion and holder of the Lambert Emblem trophy in 1912 by beating Joe Carney, a title he lost to Alfredo de Oro in 1914.
