Donald F Lippincott

My Grandfather, a two time Olympic medalist. I can't believe I found this footage of him getting the bronze in the 100m. I did not know this film existed. More to come.

Bill, I just love this. What a cool 'relic'

Sometimes, the internet effing rocks.

Lipp said...

Thanks Erin. It certainly does rock sometimes.

Just think: This is a 94 year old piece of film (1912 Olympics) showing my grandfather capturing a bronze medal that now resides about 15 feet away from me.

Cousin Bill,

Since the olympics was just over, I was thinking about granddad and did a search and found your blog and the video - which no longer appears to work.... I'd love to see it if you still see it.

PS: I've been thinking about trying to re-connect with my cousins...
