William Joseph O'Connor (May 1862 - November 1892) was a professional oarsman, tavern-keeper and long distance walker. He was born in Toronto. O'Connor traveled to Australia in 1890 for the title but was unable to get a championship match. However he did have two races in Sydney with Jim Stanbury, who subsequently became World Champion. Fans of the N29 Allen & Ginter series will recognize O'Connor. As mentioned, this is the only example recorded on the SGC census report!
