Harvard Athletic Achievements

Winner of 11 letters, largest number in Harvard history – three in track and hockey, one in baseball, and four in tennis. One of country’s leading low hurdlers, he was intercollegiate champion at 220 yards in 1910 after placing second in 1909. After Harvard had lost for two years to Yale, he won two events in 1910—the 100-yeard dash as well as the hurdles—and Harvard won the meet by a single point. An outstanding forward in hockey, he never played on a losing team against Yale. He was a regular right fielder in 1910, lettered in tennis for four straight years and won the intercollegiate singles championship. A great competitor and sportsman, he has maintained a vital interest in Harvard athletics for many years.
