Biography

Frank Righeimer began fencing at Yale, where he became the first of only three fencers to win two individual titles in a single IFA championship, capturing the foil and épée in 1929. He was undefeated in both weapons and untouched in épée. The same year he became one of the very few undergraduates to win a national championship, taking the title in épée as well as third place in foil. He also won the outdoor épée individual title in 1929 and 1933. After graduating from Yale, Righeimer attended Harvard Law School and was a successful attorney with offices in Chicago and Palm Beach. Harvard Law School honors his memory with the annual presentation of the Frank Righeimer Prize for Citizenship.
