He still made the '51 all-star game. I don't know of any voting history aside from the stickied thread in the history of hockey forum but it only lists about 5 players the year Dewsbury made the all-star game. He was a reserve player chosen by coach Joe Primeau but he may have been an injury replacement as I found a google archive calling for a few defenders (Allan Stanley and Bill Gadsby who maybe was hurt?) to be on the squad, instead of Dewsbury and another's name.

Also of note is he was a 1st All-star team reserve. The reserves for this team were made up of only American teams in the NHL, with the Second team getting reserves from only Montreal and Toronto, so he was chosen from a limited group. All the other American defenders chosen with Dewsbury were taken coming into the draft and he still had to be out some talented guys like Bill Goldham to earn it so it wasn't totally watered down, I think.
