Sir Francis ("Frank") Joseph Edmund Beaurepaire (13 May 1891 – 29 May 1956) was an Australian distance freestyle swimmer from the 1900s to the 1920s, who won three silver and three bronze medals, from the 1908 Summer Olympics in London to the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, setting 15 world records.

 

Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku (August 24, 1890 – January 22, 1968), Hawaiian, is generally regarded as the person who popularized the modern sport of surfing. He was a triple Olympic swimming champion and twice a silver medallist in three Olympic Games.

 

Reginald ("Snowy") Leslie Baker (8 February 1884 – 2 December 1953) was an Australian athlete, sports promoter and film actor. At 16 he played in the Australian Rugby Union team against Great Britain. At 17 he was middleweight boxing champion of New South Wales, and at 18 took the middleweight and heavyweight boxing titles of Australia. Baker was also prominent at polo, water polo, cricket and diving, and proficient in surfing, fencing, hockey, rowing, yachting and equestrian events. He appeared at the 1908 London Olympics, representing Australasia in the 4x200m freestyle relay, finishing fourth, and in the diving where he lost in the first round, coming seventh against the powerful Germans who dominated the sport at the time. He also took part in the Olympic boxing competition, where he lost the final match against Johnny Douglas, winning a silver medal. Douglas' father, J H Douglas, as President of the Amateur Boxing Association, presented his son with the gold medal and Baker with the silver. The official report did not name referees, but a number of newspaper and magazine reports later claimed that Douglas senior had refereed the final and Baker confirmed this in an interview in 1952 with respected journalist Norman Bartlett. The pair met in a bare-knuckle return match at a London club and Baker knocked Douglas out.

Caption from Down Beat: The serious countenance of Django Reinhardt, cover subject by Bill Gottlieb for this issue, is in deference to the great French guitarist's current concert tour with Duke Ellington. Django, who has built a tremendous American reputation through his waxings with the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, was brought from Europe last month by the William Morris Agency, and one of his first concerts in this country was the Beat's Chicago Civic Opera House concert earlier this month. He will appear with Ellington Nov. 23-24 at Carnegie Hall.
