Professor William M. Sloane was a member of the international committee that organized the first Olympics in 1896, and Professor Charles W. Kennedy '03 and Dr. Joseph W. Raycroft both served as vice-chairman of the United States Olympic Committee, with which Asa S. Bushnell '21 was identified in various capacities for almost forty years. University Physician Harry R. McPhee was head physician for the United States teams in 1952, 1960, and 1964, and Princeton's head trainer Edward G. Zanfrini was trainer for the United States teams in 1952, 1956, 1960, 1964, and 1968.
*The practice of awarding gold, silver, and bronze medals to winners of first, second, and third places was not begun until 1908.
