Summary

Full results are not known. There were apparently 38 entries and 10 gymnasts who actually competed. The event doubled as the AAU National Championship for 1904. The total score was based on the competitors' scores on the parallel bars, horizontal bar, side horse, and long horse, with a 45-point maximum on each apparatus for a total max of 180 points. Anton Heida won the gold medal with his only other national titles coming in the 1902 horse vault and the 1903 horizontal bar. In addition to the five competitors listed, it is highly likely that four of the other five gymnasts were Charles Krause, [Emil Voigt], Herman Glass, and Ralph Wilson, but the 10th competitor’s name cannot be determined.
