We not sure about his first name, it may be Marcus, Wolf or Simon or something else. Boas was active as a referee in the 1920s an 30s. He is known in the Netherlands as the referee of the first Feyenoord - Ajax, a match that later became the national clasico.

Clasico
Not yet a clasico off course, in fact Feyenoord had just entered the highest league when they faced two times champions Ajax in 1921.
The first one of the matches that later on would always be something more that a match (mostly battles between fans of the two rival cities Rotterdam and Amsterdam, and often a lot of goals) was already something to discuss about. With Ajax' first goal the ball didn't cross the goal line, according to the Feyenoord players. Boas, standing quite far off allowed the goal. After the match the Rotterdammers filed a complaint and the goal was annulled, making the official result a 2 all draw.
