          Does Dustin Hoffman's "acquaintance" in Marathon Man count?

              Kraenzlein and Tewksbury were roomates at the Penn Dental School. While the long jumper/hurdler went on to semi-prestigious coaching jobs, Mr. Tewksbury the perennial second fiddle went back to NE Pennsylvania and actually practiced as a dentist.

                Sorry Steve although Fred Hansen is a dentist and a former world record holder he is not in the Hall of Fame. Here are at least five who are in the Hall of Fame.

                Alvin Kraenzlein
                Walter Tewlsbury
                Greg Bell
                Dallas Long
                Bud Houser

                  perhaps off the subject but I would like someone to tell me how Charley Jenkins can be in the HOF and Fred Hansen is not... just an example.

                    Somebody (anybody) has to nominate him before he gets in. And that requires more than a brief letter. It requires documenting his career.
