In addition to golf, Henry (or Harry – he answered to both) Potter played hockey while he was a student at Yale. He graduated in 1906 and returned to St. Louis, where he was a member of the St. Louis Country Club. Other than his Olympic silver medal, Potter’s biggest achievement in golf was a runner-up finish in the 1907 Missouri Amateur – losing to Al Lambert.
