Aged only 15 in 1904, Henry Richardson is one of the youngest medalists ever among United States men. Though his 1904 medal came as a member of the Boston Archery Club he won an individual medal at the London Olympics of 1908. In addition to his Olympic successes, Richardson won the U.S. title at the Double York Round in 1906-07 and 1910, and at the Double American Round in 1906 and 1910. Richardson graduated in 1910 from Harvard, in 1914 from Harvard Medical School and then began a career in internal medicine on the staff of the Cornell University Medical School.
