Amazingly, one of two New Brunswickers who were on the 1924 Olympic Team! A top ranked 440 yard sprinter, 1921-1924, he was almost 22 when he competed on the Canadian Men’s 4 x 400m relay squad which placed 4th , behind USA, Sweden, Great Britain, in a time of 3:22.8, ahead of France & Italy, and also ahead of Finland, who did not make the six team final. With a personal best 95 years ago in the 50.8 seconds range, he was a two-time medallist at the National Championships. He went on to complete his university career which he completed with a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford U, England. It would appear he held the provincial 400/440 record for 40-45 years!
