(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Edward Orval Gourdin
Edward Orval Gourdin (1897 – 1966). A graduate of the Harvard class of 1921 (LL.B., 1924), Gourdin was a senior and a star on the University track team when he set the world record in the broad jump. He went on to compete in the 1924 Paris Olympics, where he would win a silver in this, his signature event. Eventually he would be appointed a U.S. Attorney (under FDR), and later a judge.
