Art Vogel first came to the Oly Club in the ‘teens as a customer. At the time he was working in the nearby rail yard shops. He went on the Club's payroll before the decade was out. Vogel was the recipient of Jack Scuitto's share in the business in 1927, some say because the younger man had taken the fall for bootlegging charges brought against the Club. As time went on, Vogel became known as the "Old Man" around the place, but he was always the authority, and the man to beat in poker games. Art died in the early 1960s and his two sons took over the business. McMenamins acquired the Club from the widow of one of the sons in 1996.
