Frazee was a footnote from there on out in Boston lore until FredLieb, in 1947, published the first written history of the Red Sox, which had a significant portion dedicated to Frazee's supposed decimation of the team.
Lieb was one of baseball's most respected writers, a Hall-of-Famer who died in 1980 at the age of 92.
Lieb also happened to be incredibly anti-Semitic, and was more than happy to bring Frazee's name out of the mothballs for another round through the mud -- two decades after Frazee's death.
