Frederick William Stone
Frederick William Stone, director of the gymnasium and professor of physical education at Miami from 1902 to 1912, died in Bellevue Hospital, New York, of a complication of diseases, November 2, 1921.
"Cap" Stone, as he is remembered by all Miami men and women who were in college from 1902 to 1912, was born in New York, December 10, 1850. He was graduated from the Miles Military Academy, Brattleboro, Vt., in 1870, and was the champion athlete of America from 1874 to 1884. He was director of the gymnasium at Columbia University 1894-96, instructor in the New Manhattan Athletic Club, New York, 1895-96, athletic manager and director of the Chicago Athletic Association 1896-1902. He was president of the Stone Correspondence School of Physical Culture 1900-04. His reputation as an athlete is shown by the frequency with which he served as referee and clerk at important athletic meets in the country. He traveled widely, visiting New Zealand, Australia, India, Italy, France, England, Germany and Russia.
Professor Stone came to Miami shortly after Doctor Benton entered on his administration, and when he came our athletics were in a rather undeveloped state. Miami had not won very much fame on the athletic field. Professor Stone developed some very notable athletes here, and under him and with the increasing number of students who came to Miami our intercollegiate teams and our track men increased in excellence and ability. During a part of the time Professor Stone's residence at Miami Mrs. Stone was physical director for women, and both Mr. and Mrs. Stone did admirable work for the college.
Professor Stone left Miami to accept a similar position at the University of Vermont in 1912. In 1917-18 he served as athletic director in France with the National War Work Council. Since the close of the war he has spent most of the time in New York City.
Professor Stone has many Miami friends who have pleasant memories of their friendship with him and who will be grieved to learn of his death.
