Promoter - Manager - Trainer
Frank E. Churchill was one of the important figures who helped develop the early Filipino boxing scene, along with Joe Waterman and the Tait Brothers -- Eddie Tait and Stewart Tait -- all of whom, incidentally, were from Washington state, USA.
Some of the boxers he managed included:
