Leroy Brown, from Dartmouth, won the AAU indoor high jump in 1922, the outdoor in 1923, and the IC4A indoor and outdoor in 1922 and 1923. His winning mark of 6-5¾ (1.97) at the 1923 AAU outdoor was the best performance in the world that year. Earlier in the season he had tied for first place with [Dick Landon], the 1920 Olympic champion, at the Millrose Games when both set a world indoor record of 6-5¼ (1.96). At the 1924 Olympics, Brown came close to repeating his 1923 form, but did not seriously threaten the winner, [Harold Osborn].
