Biography

Apart from Beals Wright, Robert LeRoy was the most successful lawn tennis player at the 1904 Olympics, winning two silver medals. LeRoy played in the Olympic tennis event while a student at Columbia University, from which he graduated in 1905. He later went on to Columbia Law, earning his LL.B. in 1908. It was at law that LeRoy did his life’s work, mainly with the firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham, and Taft on Wall Street. LeRoy never won a national tennis championship, but was three times ranked among America’s top ten players, reaching as high as fifth in 1907. His wife, née Grace Arnold Moore, was also a fine player, winning the women’s championship several times at the West Side Tennis Club in Queens, New York. Robert LeRoy was instrumental, in 1923, in establishing the Museum of the City of New York. He served as secretary and trustee of that institution until his death.
