In the interview with Sandford linked here he states that he retired in 1958 and took a job in Boston. It's not clear what he was doing in 1957, unless he misspoke and meant he retired in 1956.
Probably refers to when he signed his retirement papers. Researching the June meetings in 1956 and 1957 would provide some info as well as Chicago training camp data for the same years.

A number of players from the fifties/sixties retired early to take promising employment or business opportunities. Cullen brothers became car dealers, Gerry McNeil and Connie Broden joined Molson's.
