From page 6 of the publication listed below :-

"Hibs' young American right-winger Bobby Wilson .... Bobby Wilson had been an inspired signing by Dan McMichael the previous season, and Bobby's goals had been instrumental in Hibs reaching the Scottish Cup final."

Born in Chicago , he was known as "Yank" at Easter Road. He died just a few days before the end of World War One in November 1918.
