Jack Broderick was a staple of the Cornwall Lacrosse Club at the turn of the 20th century and was selected to represent Canada in the lacrosse tournament at the 1908 Summer Olympics. There he earned a gold medal with his team after it won its only match against Great Britain 14-10. By career he was an hotelier, operating his family’s Broderick Hotel in Cornwall, and, in 1916, he falsified his age so that he could serve in the Royal Canadian Army during World War I. He was discharged with the rank of sergeant and spent the rest of his life working for the Broderick Hotel. He was inducted into the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame in 1968.
