Buescher alto neck with a signature

I have a 1925 Buescher True Tone alto saxophone, with a "1" neck. On the left side of the neck near the cork is a name engraved: Jack McCasli


I am looking for any information possible on:
 1. Who the man is that has a name engraved on the neck of my alto
 2. Why his name would be engraved there

This horn has been in my father's possession since 1964, so the name was either added there prior to him owning it. Any help would be appreciated, if only to clear up a mystery.

A larger version of the picture is found here:
