A magnificent achievement. Water polo is a very tough sport. Someone described it as being like hockey if you couldn't come off the ice.

Yale's Don Schollander won four gold medals at the 1964 Olympics, more than any other athlete, and received the Sullivan Award as the best amateur athlete in the U.S.

Rolfe was the Yankees' third baseman during the 1930's and Dartmouth's A.D. from 1954 until his death in 1969. He was the man who hired Bob Blackman.

Rolfe prepped at Exeter and was Yale's baseball and basketball coach after he left the Yankees.
