Biography

Hugo Friend's parents emigrated to America when he was two years old and initially settled in Great Bend, Kansas, before moving to Chicago in 1890.

Later in the season he scored a double in the long jump and the high hurdles at the AAU championships. After graduation, Friend joined the Chicago AA and at the 1906 Olympics, placed fourth in the hurdles in addition to his long jump bronze medal. Friend practiced as a lawyer but was soon appointed to judge, and he was the presiding judge at baseball's most notorious trial, the Chicago Black Sox scandal of 1919. After the jury acquitted the accused players, Friend congratulated them for "a just verdict".
