Abstract

Morley Drury (1903-1989) was an all-America running back at the University of Southern California in 1927, becoming the first Trojan to rush for 1000 yards in a season earning him the nickname of "The Noblest Trojan of Them All." The first Trojan inducted into the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in 1954, Drury also played basketball, water polo, and ice hockey at SC. After his last year at USC in 1927, Drury became the manager of USC's intercollegiate baseball team which was coached by the former Detroit Tigers outfielder Sam Crawford ("Wahoo Sam.") In the spring and summer of 1928, the USC team traveled to Japan; Morley Drury kept a diary of their travels during that time.
