Harvard Athletic Achievements

Half of the most famous brother combination in Harvard fencing history with identical twin brother Edward L. Lane ’24, how can they be separated? In days when fencing matches were held in such places as the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Astor in New York, the Lanes led Harvard to two straight intercollegiate championships, the first since 1899. Facially indistinguishable, they became individuals behind the iron mask; Everett forever on the attack and Edward piling up points with a devilish defense.
