Vintage Lacrosse Medal Collection


Laxmedals.com originated from my desire to recreate the quality and uniqueness of old lacrosse medals just like the ones you see below. My father, Nolan H. Rogers (1931-2014), introduced me to the game of lacrosse and we enjoyed sharing our passion for the sport together. Nolan was an All-American defenseman at Duke and graduated in 1953. He finished law school, entered the U.S. Army and was station in Germany 1957-1960 as JAG officer assigned to the 8th Infantry Division (The "These are my credentials" division). Nolan rekindled his passion for lacrosse as he taught me the game and became involved managing the Maryland Lacrosse Club during all those USILA championship teams. He later managed four US Lacrosse teams helping to get gold in all four games he managed. He is a member of the Maryland Lacrosse Club, the Maryland Chapter and National Chapter of the Lacrosse Hall of Fame. 

My first vintage lacrosse medals were presented to me by Douglas H. Stone M.D. Stone was a graduate of the Friends School of Baltimore and Johns Hopkins University. He was a member of the 1932 Hopkins Lacrosse team, which participated in the Olympic Games exhibition in Los Angeles, California. (no I do not have a medal from this event that might have been presented to this team by the Olympic Committee, the Holy Grail of all Lacrosse medals I would assume…) After graduating JHU medical school in 1937, Douglas began practicing as a surgeon and when war came in 1941 Dr. Stone and his colleagues were called upon to establish mobile surgical hospitals for the Army. Dr. Stone eventually landed with the third wave of infantry on the D-Day beaches in Normandy, France in the evening of June 6, 1944. He and his unit began saving lives for endless days and nights under constant enemy fire. His unit served through to the end of the war constantly on the front lines and on a few occasions behind the enemy lines. I was fortunate to have met Douglass before his passing and include his wartime stories in my book,
Answering Their Country’s Call: Marylanders in the Second World War (Johns Hopkins Univ Press 2003)

On the occasion of our last conversation in the summer of 2002, Douglass said he was sending me some things he didn’t know what else to do with. I received a package a couple weeks later from his wife, Essie, sadly along with a letter informing me Douglas had passed away a week prior. But, following through on his wishes she sent me the box he had prepared to send me. To my disbelief, inside the box I found several vintage medals featuring the game of Lacrosse. I was truly touched to have been the recipient of something so personal belonging to someone I admired so much. Thinking back, we had chatted briefly about my lacrosse playing days at Rutgers during our interviews for the book and I guess he figured I would appreciate his medals. I surely did appreciate the medals and still have them in a frame over my desk.

My collection has since grown to about two dozen vintage medals dating from the late 19th Century to the 1950′s. I really enjoy researching the history behind each medal and there is always something to learn about the history of the game. I often wonder what reaction players of old would have to see the modern game...to see the result of their passions in keeping the game alive through the years. 

Douglas stone and his lacrosse medals are my inspiration for collecting vintage lacrosse medals and are the genesis for the creation of a new generation of lacrosse medals through Laxmedals.com. I thought I would have appreciated receiving award medals like his during my playing days, and I was sure others would too. Since my creation of Laxmedals.com, I have been proven right a thousand times over from all the smiles I see on the faces of the kids and grown adults receiving my Laxmedals medals and awards. I am proud to have met and known Douglas Stone and to share a part of his life with you. He is a real american hero.

I hope the story of Douglas Stone's life and his lacrosse medals inspire you as they continue to inspire me.  - Michael Rogers, President. November 2013.

Color bronze with gold and black drape ribbon. Reverse etched with "1931" by Stone. Manufacturer Johnson Company, New York, NY. (Stone shown in photo left circa 1944)

This medal was named in honor of Colonel Robert M. Thompson (Shown left, 2 March 1849 – 5 September 1930), USNA graduate, lawyer, President of the NY Athletic Club and US Olympic Committee president, who argued for the establishment a lacrosse championship for NY City public school boys in 1910 as an alternative to football, which in his opinion was too violent a game for young boys. In his application to the Board of Superintendents of the Public Schools of Greater New York, Col. Thompson described the virtues of lacrosse as a “Purely American game…” and argued for the establishment of a championship series because lacrosse was a “…fascinating and graceful game requiring one to be fleet of foot, quick eye, good judgment in the passing of the ball, or what is known as team playing, and it has none of the physical dangers of football.” The only documentation of the championship occurring reports a championship was to be held in 1918. No other record of the event was found. Manufacturer is Dieges and Clust of 27 John Street. This New York company manufactured medals and trophies during the early twentieth century. Marked “Solid Gold – NY” Measures 2 inches. Color gold with faux diamond insert.

USNA '27
1926 USNA Lacrosse Team

This medal was awarded to a member of the 1926 United States Naval Academy lacrosse team, defenseman Jack Maginnis. Maginnis was born in Duluth, MN. in 1904 and hailed from Oakland, California when admitted to the USNA class of 1927. Maginnis was a three-time letterman on the footbll squad but lettered only once in lacrosse his senior year. The USNA yearbook, Lucky Bag, records Maginnis’ senior year lacrosse season officially as the 1926 lacrosse season, in which the Navy squad finished with a 7-0 record (N.Y.U 4-0, Lafayette 23-0, Lehigh 8-1, Rutgers 10-2, Cornell 3-0, Onondaga Indians 14-3). The Midshipmen concluded the season at West Point with a 3-2 win over Army. Despite Navy's undefeated record, the Hopkins squad was recognized as the ’26 national lacrosse champions. After entering the fleet, Maginnis began a thirty-one-year naval career serving initially as a meteorologist aboard the Ship of State USS CONSTITUTION. His later assignments were aboard the destroyer USS PARROTT (DD-218), destroyer USS BLACK (DD-666), destroyer USS IRWIN (DD-794), and later commanded the heavy cruiser USS MINNEAPOLIS (CA-36) and heavy cruiser USS SALEM (CA-139). He served in World War II and the Korean Conflict, during which he was the ranking U.S. naval officer wounded.  On July 8, 1953, Capt. Maginnis was serving on the destroyer USS Irwin when the ship was targeted by an estimated 80 rounds from shore batteries near Songjin, North Korea. The ship took a direct hit to her main-mast seriously wounding Maginnis and several others. After a series of three operations on his wounds, Capt. Maginnis returned to active duty in January 1954 and retired in 1957. Capt. Maginnis died in 1977.  Color silver with blue and gold drape ribbon. Manufacturer not marked, but I will assume the manufacturer was the Johnson Company, New York, NY., as later issues of this style medal bears its mark. Measures 1.5 inches. Stamped “Sterling.”

While I do not know who on the Yale squad received this medal, it is possible it might have been one of two future First Team All-Americans, Earl Stevens or Winthrop Smith (shown in photo to left). Winthrop "Pinky" Smith was a star center on the Yale Lacrosse Team for three years and was selected First Team All-American in 1930 and 1931. Smith was elected to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1968. The remainder of the roster included Draper, Rust, Fields, Scott, Dryfoos, Mallory, Fouck, Woodhill, Gaston, and Burrall.  Manufacturer unknown although it appears there is a stamp “Rankoff” at the top on the reverse. Measures .5 inch x 1 inch. Silver marked “Sterling.”

Lacrosse Medals, vintage Lacrosse medals, lacrosse awards, lacrosse trophies, history of lacrosse, Lacrosse championships, US lacrosse, Canada Lacrosse Created for the La Crosse, Wisconsin delegate committee for the fifth annual convention of the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks (B.P.O.E) fraternal organization in 1906. The La Crosse, Wisconsin delegates of the B.P.O.E chose to feature the game of lacrosse on their convention badges because their native city was named after a sporting contest that used sticks and a ball the nearby native inhabitants were playing. According to the La Crosse, Wisconsin history records, the city's name was derived from "...the game with sticks that resembled a bishop’s crocier, or la crosse, in French, which was played by Native Americans in the vicinity.”  The sport created by Native Americans we all now know as, Lacrosse. Reverse of medal is blank. Manufactured by the Scwaab Stamp & Seal Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  The company was founded in 1881 and still exists in Milwaukee making rubber stamp and embossing tools. Color gold with enamel fil. Meausures 4 x 2.5 inches.

Lacrosse Medals, vintage Lacrosse medals, lacrosse awards, lacrosse trophies, history of lacrosse, Lacrosse championships, US lacrosse, Canada Lacrosse Lacrosse Medals, vintage Lacrosse medals, lacrosse awards, lacrosse trophies, history of lacrosse, Lacrosse championships, US lacrosse, Canada Lacrosse Presented to an “E.R.W.” a member of the 1914 Brampton Excelsiors (Toronto), which was a finalist in the 1914 Mann Cup. The Mann cup was named in honor of Donald Mann, the architect of the Canadian Northern Railroad. The sponsor of the event was Joe Lally, owner of the premier lacrosse stick manufacturing company of the time. The 1914 tournament was wrought with controversy. In play, the Vancouver Athletic Club defeated Brampton and then Calgary in the final. Following their loss, Calgary claimed two members of the Vancouver team were professionals and could not compete. Joe Lally, the tournaments trustee, sided with Calgary and awarded the title to Bramption. However, the Canadian Lacrosse Association overturned this ruling and awarded the championship back to Vancouver. Whether this was a consolation award or some recognition of the team as “partial champions” due to the controversy surrounding their controversial loss to Vancouver, is unknown. The Brampton team disbanded after the 1914 season as many of its members went off to serve in World War I. The team did not resume play until 1919. This medal is significant therefore as it represents the end of an era for Canadian lacrosse and a generation. Color Gold with red drape ribbon. 1.5 inches. Manufacturer mark is “C.J.L.”

E. Abbe, of Fall River, Massachusetts, Harvard class of 1914. Undated. This medal was most likely received in 1911, 1912, or 1913, which were all years Abbe was a member of the Crimson lacrosse teams that won the Northern Division USIC championship. The medal would be a bit more special if received in 1912, the year Harvard was the sole National Champion. Harvard shared the championship title n 1913 with the Johns Hopkins team. Abbe is noted several times in the Crimson Times reports having a prolific shooting ability and a leader in the teams success. Abbe enlisted in the Amry Medical Corps June 13, 1917 and served until discharged  May 2, 1919. Measures 1.5 inches, sterling silver. Original ribbon unfortunately lost.

The reverse engraving on this medal suggests it was presented to member of the 1914 Ontario Lacrosse Association Junior “A” champion, which was St. Catherines. The maple leaf relief on reverse is unique. An interesting footnote to this medal is Canadian Lacrosse suffered severely the following year with many of the sports young men enlisting to fight in World War I. In many ways, this medal represents the end of an era for Canadian lacrosse and its generation. The manufacturer appears to be a J.D.B in Toronto, but no information on this company could be found.

This lacrosse medal as awarded to USNA Midshipman Stephen Potter McNally of Allendale, New Jersey. McNally was a prodigious athlete lettering in lacrosse 3 years and also baseball, basketball and football.  This medal was presented to McNally following is Junior year in which the Navy lacrosse team recorded a 10-2 record (Wash. Coll 13-5, Harvard 13-1, VA. 8-7, PSU 19-1, MD 9-10, Duke 9-5, Princeton 8-13, JHU 7-4, Penn 12-5). Navy completed its season with a 10-7 win over the Cadets in Annapolis. The following year McNally was a member of the ’54 squad, which is considered to be the greatest team in Navy history and perhaps one of the most dominant ever in college lacrosse history.  During its 10-0 national championship season, the team set an amazing record of 154 goals for and only 31 goals against. There is little record of McNally's tragic death on January 8, 1958 in an aircraft accident off the Virginia Capes. The reverse of the medal is engraved with McNally’s name and the win over Army by a score of 10-7 at the conclusion of the season to secure Navy’s national championship.
