THORPE, JAMES FRANCIS (1888–1953).

Jim Thorpe was perhaps the United States' greatest athlete of the twentieth century. An American Indian, he is usually considered to be Sac and Fox, although he also had Potawatomi, Menomini, and Kickapoo, as well as Irish and French, ancestry. Thorpe was born a twin on the Sac and Fox reservation near present Prague, Oklahoma, on May 28, 1888 (some controversy exists concerning his birth year, as his estate cites 1887), to Hiram and Charlotte Vieux Thorpe. They named one twin Charles and the other James Francis, known also as Wa-tho-huck, which in the Sac and Fox language means "Bright Path." He indeed followed one of the brightest paths in United States athletic history, excelling in football, baseball, and Olympics competition. He was selected by the Associated Press as the greatest athlete of the first half of the twentieth century.
