Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Northrup R. Knox
Elected March 17, 1994

Born to polo, Northrup "Norty" Knox can claim considerable achievements both on and off the field. The only amateur in the postwar era to reach an eight-goal rating, he captained the US team in the challenge for the Cup of the Americas in 1965 and 1969, distinguishing himself as one of America's finest offensive players.

In his many of years of service to the sport, including the chairmanship of the USPA, Norty insightfully championed the cause of low-goal players establishing the twelve-goal and lower-goal Governor's Cup, along with the minus one rating. These actions served well the subsequent resurgence of the sport.

Among his other accomplishments on the polo field are a National Twenty-Goal Championship, and a Butler Handicap title.
