Samuel Morley, cricket coach and professional cricket player, and Joseph Howland Coit, Jr. (Form of 1881 and faculty member from 1883-1907) are identified in this photograph.
Samuel Morley came to St. Paul’s School in 1882 from England, where he had been a professional cricket player of great acclaim throughout the 1870s. It was during his time as coach that cricket was at its most popular at St. Paul’s School, due to his enthusiasm and skill at the sport. He coached cricket until 1902, and after his retirement, without his inspiration, cricket soon fell out of favor.
