Biography

In the 1904 men’s doubles, Clarence Gamble partnered Arthur Wear. Together they won two matches before coming upon the team of Beals Wright and Edgar Leonard, the eventual champions, to whom they succumbed quite easily. Gamble was not well known as a tennis player, but he was recognized as an all-round athlete. He attended Washington University (St. Louis) where he played football, baseball, and golf. In later years Gamble became a successful stock broker in St. Louis, where he worked for the same firm as his partner Arthur Wear.
