A three-sport athlete at Williston Academy, Harlow “Chip” Ide used his speed and competitive nature to excel on the gridiron, in the pool, and on the track.
An All-American swimmer in the 50 Free, Chip helped set national prep school records in the medley relay, 200 free relay and 400 free relay. In 1954, he was a member of the 400 free relay team that placed fourth at the AAU National Championships.
After his senior year at Williams College, he was presented with the Richardson Medal for the best swimmer. On the Williams football team, he averaged over 8.1 yards per carry, played in the 1959 All-America Bowl, and was honored with the Brooks Memorial Medal, given to the best small college halfback in the East.
Chip Ide’s award was presented to him by Joel Schiavone ’54.
