1919 Beautiful photograph of Olympian Robert LeGendre who won a bronze medal in the 1924 games, as he appeared five years earlier in college. He was one of the top athletes of his era and this is the only example we have ever seen. He would tragically die in 1931 and this is a rare image that is among his earliest we have ever seen! There is a crease at the right and some pinholes from editorial use, but otherwise it presents pretty well.
