Robert Acton was born in Ireland and emigrated to the United States when he was young. He entered Harvard Medical School in 1891 and was coerced by other players to try out for the football team because of his "remarkably large size" (he was 6' 1" and 208 pounds). Acton was the starting left guard for the Crimson during the 1892 and 1893 seasons. He was also a member of the crew team. A shoulder injury prevented Acton from playing in 1894. Acton died from "morphine poisoning" in 1900. According to his obituary he used a self-prescribed regimen of opiates to treat his insomnia. Although relatively young (29 years); Acton was a noted physician at the time of his death. This example, graded PSA 8 OC, is the only N302 Acton at this level with none higher.
