Fred Towsley Murphy was a four year varsity starter at tackle for Yale. He was Captain of the Bulldogs during his senior season (1896). His injuries during the Harvard-Yale game (Hampden Park Bloodbath) of 1894 were widely publicized (he remained unconscious for four hours with a concussion). Murphy's injury and the violence of that particular game generated mass protest against football; forcing rule changes and the modernization of the game. Murphy earned All American honors following the 1895 and 1896 seasons. He continued his education at Yale; received his medical degree in 1901, and eventually became the professor of surgery at Washington University in St. Louis. He was a commanding officer (Colonel) at a base hospital in Europe during World War I and received the Distinguished Service Medal for his efforts. He relocated to Detroit following the war and continued to practice as a surgeon and researcher. He is a noted early cancer research advocate. The offered N302 Murphy is the best in the hobby, graded PSA 7 with no others at that level or any higher.
