Basketball Hall of Fame as player

Charles Edward "Ed" Macauley (born March 22, 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former professional basketball player.

Macauley spent his prep school days at St. Louis University High School, then went on to Saint Louis University, where his team won the NIT championship in 1948. He was named the AP Player of the Year in 1949.

Macauley played in the NBA with the St. Louis Bombers, Boston Celtics, and St. Louis Hawks. Macauley was named MVP of the first NBA All-Star Game (he played in the first seven), and was named to the NBA's All-NBA First Team three consecutive seasons. He was named to the All-NBA second team once, in 1953-54 — the same season he led the league in field goal percentage. Macauley's trade (with Cliff Hagan) to St. Louis brought Bill Russell to the Celtics. Macauley scored 11,234 points in ten NBA seasons and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1960. His uniform number 22 has been retired by the Boston Celtics, and he also has been awarded a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

In 1989 Macauley was ordained a deacon of the Catholic Church. He is co-author of the book, with Father Francis Friedl, Homilies Alive: Creating Homilies That Hit Home.[1]
