Biography

From 1955 through 1958, Bobby Cleary played hockey for Harvard and broke the school scoring record, set by his older brother, [Billy]. Bobby led the nation in scoring in both his junior and senior years, captained the team as a senior, and was twice named to the NCAA All-American team. In addition he played three years of varsity baseball, also captaining that team in his senior year, and played three seasons in the well-known Cape Cod Baseball League.

After leaving college, Cleary played for the 1960 gold medalists, went into the insurance business, and set up a casualty and property insurance company with his older brother. The Cleary brothers had missed the Olympic try-outs through business commitments and their late call-up to the roster was originally very unpopular with their teammates. Bobby Cleary became a life member of the Million Dollar Round Table and was one of the few agents to win the Flagship Award for top life insurance sales in multiple years. Cleary is a member of the US Hockey Hall of Fame, the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame, and the Harvard Varsity Club Hall of Fame.
