As an 18-year-old at Stuyvesant High School in New York, Frank Hussey ran 9.6 for 100y but the mark was never ratified as equalling the world record. He later attended Boston College and Columbia. In 1924 he placed fourth at the Final Trials in the 100m, which put him on the relay team that set a world record in the heats, semi-final, and final. Hussey’s only AAU title came in 1925 when he beat the redoubtable Jackson Scholz over 100y, and the following day he ran the opening stage for the New York AC team that won the AAU 4×110y relay with a new world record of 41.4. Frank Hussey worked most of his life as a salesman, but also taught in the New York State Prison System. He spent much of his free time as an official at local track meets.

Personal Best: 100 – 10.7e (1924).
