John Patrick NICHOLSON

John Nicholson won the AAU high hurdles in 1912. A very versatile athlete, he finished third at the AAUs in the pole vault and triple jump in 1909. He competed for the University of Missouri and the Missouri AC.

Nicholson became a renowned track coach. He started at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana in 1913, but then went to the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. In 1920 he moved to Rice University, but in 1928 was lured to Canada to coach the Montreal Athletic Club. In 1928 Knute Rockne convinced Nicholson to come to Notre Dame. Nicholson became mostly known for his work at the South Bend school, but it lasted only 12 years, as he died suddenly in April 1940.

Personal Best: 120yH – 15.2 (1912).
