Parker W. Whittemore '95, of Roslindale, fullback, came from the Boston Latin School. He is the captain of the baseball team, and has won a reputation on the nine.

This year during the entire fall Harvard has had at the head of her body of coaches Dr. William A. Brooks, Jr., '87, a man particularly well qualified by his football experience to fill the position. A knowledge of the details of individual play Dr. Brooks gained by two years training as a varsity player on the Harvard eleven, of which he was captain in 1886; but it was not as an individual coach that he was intended to be of service this season. He has rather taken a position similar to Mr. Camp's at Yale as chief adviser of the staff. For many years he has been referee at the annual Yale-Princeton games, and his reputation is such that his decisions are everywhere held to be above dispute. The perfect familiarity with the details of play which this implies, is the best assurance that could be had of Dr. Brooks's ability to advise wisely in the question of Harvard's football policy; and it is largely in this capacity of adviser that he has worked for Harvard.
