Harvard Athletic Achievements

As menacing as Cerberus, he guarded Harvard nets with unwavering courage and skill for three years. Tall, grim of purpose, he claimed two shutouts as his teams beat Yale in four out of six games. In those days of seven-man teams (a riving center was the additional player), Harvard entertained and frequently beat leading collegiate teams from Canada and the best club teams in the East, providing him with a constant test of his goal-tending skills – a test he passed with honor grades. After graduation, he resisted professional hockey overtures in favor of pursuing an outstanding business career.
