Biography

Elmer Boeseke played most of his polo in Santa Barbara, which was not surprising as it was the Boeseke family which started polo in the area in the 1890s. The son of a two-time Mayor of Santa Barbara, Elmer was a member of the US winning team against Argentina in the 1932 Cup of the Americas. Boeseke represented the West Coast against the East Coast in 1933 and 1934, playing in the winning team in the first of those years. He was a member of the Greentree team which won the Monty Waterbury Memorial Cup in 1929, and in 1933 was on the Aurora team which won both the National Open Championship and the Waterbury Memorial. In 1934 Boeseke became only the 11th player in U.S. polo history to be given a 10-goal handicap rating.
