University of Michigan Football
Team Captain, 1922
An excellent example of a man who carried gridiron success into late life, the Grand Rapids athlete entered Michigan in 1919, started at end and played every game. He continued through 1921 as an outstanding all-around wingman. A brilliant student, later an engineer and businessman, he also became a Big Ten official, a University Regent, member of the Athletic Board. During World War II, he served as Lieutenant Commander on an aircraft carrier.
