Brainerd Hunt Whitbeck Jr. '29, of Brouxville, N. Y., was reelected captain of the Harvard tennis team for 1928-29 at a meeting held yesterday afternoon at Coach H. L. Cowles' shop.
Whitbeck, University net leader this season, follows in the footsteps of his brother, J. F. W. Whitbeck '27 who also held the captaincy during his last two years in college.
The younger Whitbeck has been prominent in tennis since his school days at Loomis Institute, where he was captain for two seasons. While there he won the National Indoor Boys' singles championship and the Harvard interscholastic crown.
This afternoon Captain Whitbeck and M. T. Hill '30, No. 2 on this year's team, will face G. E. Abbot '17 and W. W. Weld '16 in the finals of the State Mens' doubles tournament at the Squash Center in Newton.
