                    If Luther Cary is the correct answer then his college has too much history to keep it all straight.

                    The "hint" they provided is wrong, as it was Charles Sherrill of Yale who first used the crouch start in this country. Sherrill was taught the crouch by Mike Murphy, who had seen it used in Australian professional races.

                      I was 4 years ahead of Cary. Knew him well, but didn't room with him.
