WHO'S WHO 

IN 

AMERICAN SPORTS 



FOREWORD 

Sport today has become one of the main 

institutions of America. In one form or 

another its influence has gone into almost 

every American home. Naturally those 

who have helped to fill up this institution 

and those who through competition have 

helped make a good story of sport worth 

writing, have become interesting subjects 

to many millions. It is the purpose of 

"Who's IVho In American Sports" to 

furnish all the important information 

concerning the leaders in every line, 

so that there will be a full record 

of their achievements.

WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN SPORTS 



Preface 

Who's Who In American Sports presents the biographical sketches 
and records of four thousand men and women notable in the 
annals of athletics in the United States. The aim and purpose 
of this volume is as worthy as it is stupendous. The work of gathering 
and editing this data has required many months of painstaking labor 
and has been retarded by the natural and innate modesty of those whose 
sketches and records are herein presented. 

Sports editors, college and high school coaches, athletic directors, 
alumni secretaries, in fact a veritable army of well-wishers and helpers, 
as well as the entire staff of the National Biographical Society set to 
work in the early summer of 1927 to compile a list of eligibles for this 
publication. At that time there were no available records suitable for 
presentation. More than 32,000 names were collected, arranged and 
classified. Questionnaires were sent to all of these, and over 12,000 
responded with partial or complete data. 

After careful consideration 4,000 sketches were approved for inclu- 
sion in this volume. The publishers realize that many sketches worthy 
of this distinction have been omitted. This is by no means an oversight, 
as it has been exceedingly difficult to trace and contact a large number 
who are not only eligible, but who are among the outstanding athletes 
of the nation. In a few instances we have given pictorial recognition 
without the accompanying sketches. As rapidly as these men and women 
°.an be reached, their names and records will be filed for future editions. 

It is apparent that such a volume as Who's Who In American 
Sports required the co-operation of those high officials, coaches and 
tvriters whose knowledge of American athletics has made them specialists 
in their respective fields. The willingness with which many of these 
authorities responded to our request for assistance was most encouraging 
to the publishers, and the National Biographical Society takes this oppor- 
tunity to extend its thanks to the following leaders of American athletics 
\vho have aided materially in the production of this Souvenir edition of 
Who's Who In American Sports : 

Maj. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, president American Olympic Committee. 

Hon. Murray Hulbert, president A. A. U. of United States. 

Gustavus T. Kirby, chairman Advisory Committee, I. C. A. A. A. A. 

Dr. John J. Tigert, United States Commissioner of Education. 

Dr. James Naismith, honorary chairman, National Joint Basketball 

Committee. 
Samuel H. Collom, president, U. S. L. T. A. 
Clark C. Griffith, president, Washington Baseball Club. 
Charles L. Ornstein, member Executive Committee, American Olympic 

Committee. 
Porter Adams, president, National Aeronautic Association. 
Henry Penn Burke, president, National Association of Amateur Oarsmen. 
C. Edward Beckett, member Y. M. C. A. Section of Joint Basketball 

Committee. 
A. Y. Leech, Jr., Executive Committeeman, U. S. L. T. A. 
Louis Little, director athletics, Georgetown University. 
Lieut. Col. Nelson E. Margetts, chairman, Army Polo Committee. 
Charles W. Paddock, journalist, lecturer and World's Sprint champion. 
W. A. Rogers, vice-president, American Power Boat Association. 
Fred McLeod, Professional Golf Association.

WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN SPORTS 



And the following sports writers : Warren Brown, Chicago ; Harry 
Costello, Detroit, Mich.; Nick Flately, Boston, Mass.; James M. Gould, 
St. Louis, Mo. ; Kirk Miller, Washington, D. C. ; Lawrence Perry, New 
York City, N. Y. ; Grantland Rice, New York City, N. Y.; Harry B. 
Smith, San Francisco, Cal., and Joseph Williams, New Y r ork City, N. Y r . 

The National Biographical Society realizes that this edition has 
fallen short of a complete coverage of the entire field of sports. Criti- 
cisms and ideas from the fraternity are cordially invited, and will be 
tiled for future reference and incorporated in later editions. Certain 
deficiencies are apparent in this volume. A work as vast and detailed 
as this has involved months of correspondence, research and expense. 
Ommissions will be rectified as speedily as possible. 

The names, records and sketches of thousands of American men and 
women are now on file. This list is being increased daily. Efforts are 
being continued to compile all information available along these lines. 
This data will be furnished upon request and without cost to any and 
all sports writers who are subscribers. The fraternity as a whole is also 
cordially invited to take advantage of this service.

Standards for "Who's Who in American Sports" 

THE stamp of approval upon the eligibility requirements by the 
committee selected for that purpose has included practically all 
those whose meritorious achievements in the world of athletics 
warrented selection. The monumental task confronting the editor and 
the editorial advisory board was attacked with the knowledge that this 
first effort would fall short of complete coverage. 

Any Official, Coach, Promoter, Manager, Trainer, Live Stock Owner, 
Patron or amateur or professional athlete participating in 

Skiing 

Soccer 

Tennis 

Track and Field 

Trap Shooting

WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN SPORTS 



The Editorial Board of the National Biographical Society will gladly 
welcome the names or list of names of any and all athletes deemed worthy 
of inclusion in a later volume. From the vast lists of colleges, schools, 
athletic clubs, athletic associations, manuals and membership records 
there are no doubt many hundreds of persons whose achievements in 
sports warrant inclusion in a later volume or whose names and sketches 
should be in the files. 

Questionnaires will be gladly sent upon application. Lists of names 
and addresses of leading athletes are desired. In helping to make future 
volumes more comprehensive, the co-operation of the fraternity is ear- 
nestly solicited. All institutions and individuals are asked to provide 
assistance in this worthy endeavor.

Special Notice 



THE compilation of names for Who's Who In American Sports has 
been a most interesting and absorbing task as well as a difficult 
one. While twelve months have been spent in the effort, it is real- 
ized that four or five times that length of time might have been devoted 
before a hundred per cent completion could be obtained. 

While various institutions have co-operated materially, the editor 
feels that the future will be productive of greater and better results. 

In verifying, revising and editing these four thousand sketches and 
in checking the additional eight thousand names not included in this 
volume, a most amazing fund of information has been classified for future 
reference. 

The editor will acknowledge thankfully the receipt of advice per- 
taining to errors, ommissions or misstatements. 

It is felt that as we are becoming a nation of athletes and our chil- 
dren are following in our footsteps, we are becoming one great fraternity. 
To this end it will be greatly appreciated if further co-operation is 
extended by those who are interested in this vast subject. 

The Editor.
