Ted Vogel qualified for the 1948 Olympic Team by being the first-placed American at all three of the Olympic selection races. He was third in the 1947 Boston Marathon, second in the 1948 Boston Marathon, and won the 1948 AAU Marathon. He ran for Tufts and the Boston AA. Vogel served in the Navy during World War II. His major road race win came at the 1948 Manchester (NH) Road Race, always held on Thanksgiving morning. He stopped competing after the 1949 track season, but always ran for exercise. Vogel worked for many years with the Hallmark Company.
