Robert Thomas Fisher

Inducted 1973

Date of Birth



Boston, MA


Harvard University (1909-1911)


An inspirational field leader, Bob Fisher was the core of the Harvard line in the early days of football when the Crimson and rival Yale dominated the game. He was big at 206 pounds guard but also quick and aggressive. The Harvard lineman dominated the talent at his position and drew Walter Camp's first-team honors in both 1910 and 1911 and was a third-team pick in 1909. During that 1909 campaign, sophomore Fisher helped the Crimson win eight of nine games, the only blemish coming in an 8-0 loss to Yale. The Bulldogs ruined another bid for perfection the following year when they forced a scoreless deadlock which left Harvard at 8-0-1, yet Harvard still captured the national title. Fisher captained the 6-2-1 Harvard club as a senior. Nineteen of the 22 victories over Fisher's three years were shutouts, including eight during the 1910 campaign when Harvard scored 155 points while allowing only five.
