Biography

Julie Roosevelt made his first Olympic appearance in 1948 when, as a 23-year-old Harvard student, he was a crew member on the U.S. entry in the Dragon class that finished 11th of 12 starters. His fortunes improved considerably at the 1952 Olympics and Roosevelt won a gold medal as a member of Herman Whiton’s crew in the 6m class. At the 1956 Olympics Roosevelt was a reserve crew member in the Sharpie class in addition to being a member of the international jury and chairman of the 5.5m race committee. Roosevelt studied at Philips Exeter and graduated from Harvard in 1950. Roosevelt, who was an investment banker with Sterling Grace and Co. in New York City, had been very active in sports administration and, for his contributions to sailing, he was given the Nathaniel G. Herreshoff Trophy in 1962. He was also made an honorary member of multiple sailing clubs in Europe. Roosevelt was appointed treasurer of the USOC in 1965 and, in 1974, was elected as a member of the International Olympic Committee, for which he served on the Executive Board from 1982-86.
