Tom Thorp, Noted Race Steward, Dies in Mass.
Miami sportmen, along with those throughout the nation, especially football and horse racing followers, Tuesday mourned the death of Tom Thorp in Cambridge, Mass., Monday, following a several weeks' illness, brought on by a heart attack.
Thorp, 60, for many years was ranked as one of the outstanding football officials in the country, dividing his time between that sport and writing horse racing for the New York Journal. In recent years he retired from grid officiating, and quit sports writing to become an official at various tracks.
One of Thorp's last football assignments was refereeing the pro game between the Washington Red Skins and Chicago Bears here in February, 1938. He also refereed the three previous Orange Bowl games.
Thorp has been a familiar figure around Miami race tracks since the sport first started here. He became a steward at Tropical Park when that track opened in 1931 and continued in that capacity every session. He also was steward at three New England tracks.
Thorp also was owner of a sporting goods store in New York City, managed by his brother.
