Biography

Although Delos Thurber was a 6-7½ (2.02) high jumper, his performances tended to be overshadowed by the record-breaking feats of his contemporaries, Corny Johnson and Dave Albritton. He never won a major domestic championship, but placed third at the NCAA in 1937 and tied for third the following year. After his graduation from Southern Cal he became an airline pilot in the Philippines.

Personal Best: HJ – 2.019 (1936).
