dc.description Black and white photograph of Rice Institute Owls track and field athlete Fred Wolcott, class of 1940, accompanied by text headlining his achievement and entry into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame.
dc.description Caption reads: Flying FRED WOLCOTT (1940) set seven world’s records, outdoors and indoors, in hurdle events in his three years competition for Rice. He led Rice to the conference track and field championship in 1938 and 1939. He won the 100-yard dash as well as both high and low hurdles and ran on the 440-yard relay to amass a never-equaled 49.25 points in three Southwest Conference meets. He won National Intercollegiate and National AAU titles in both highs and lows. War II robbed Wolcott of almost certain Olympic honors by forcing cancellation of the 1940 Games. Fred came to Rice from Snyder. He built a successful oil-gas business, operating out of Houston. Fred passed away Jan. 26, 1972.
