Arthur Joseph Rooney
"The Chief"
Jan 27, 1901 - Aug 25, 1988

Art Rooney was an exceptional athlete, playing minor league baseball, semi-pro football and boxing his way onto the US Olympic Boxing Team in 1920, even though he did not compete. On July 8, 1933, he founded the 5th oldest franchise in the National Football League, which were originally called the Pittsburgh Pirates.

At some point Mr. Rooney became affectionately known as 'The Chief.' The Steeler players took great joy in presenting him with the team's first Super Bowl Trophy following their win in Super Bowl IX against the Minnesota Vikings. Fans remember him for his personal responses to their letters; postcards that were signed "Good wishes always to you and yours - Art Rooney."

Art Rooney, Sr. was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio in 1964 for his contributions to the NFL and the Pittsburgh Steelers. His larger-than-life statue outside Heinz Field is a fitting reminder of 'The Chief.'
