Biographical/Historical note

Harry "Hack" Applequist attended Washington State College and received a degree in geology in 1916. He played right tackle on the undefeated 1915 football team which went to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on January 1, 1916 and defeated Brown University.

Applequist was offered a job on the WSC coaching staff by Athletic Director J. Fred Bohler and became assistant football coach and head baseball coach from 1923-1926. In 1923, he married Mildred Perry, also a WSC graduate. Again leaving WSC, he accepted a coaching position in Sacramento, California, and eventually became coordinator of the Sacramento City Unified School District's entire physical education program, a position he retained until he retired in 1956.
