Harry Baujan lettered four years as an end on the Notre Dame football team. In his first year, 1913, Knute Rockne was team's other end and captain of the team. In the next three years, Rockne was assistant coach; in all four years, Jesse Harper was the head coach. Baujan made the all-Indiana and all-Western teams. He played for pro teams in Massillon and Cleveland and served in the Army in World War I. He became head coach at the University of Dayton in 1923 and guided the team through 1946, with three years out for World War II. He posted a final record of 124-64-8. It was not his won-lost record alone that boosted Baujan to greatness. It was his successful conduct of the football program, guiding Dayton from a small, independent entry to membership in the Ohio Conference and, later, the Buckeye Conference. He built a new stadium and drummed up the crowds to fill it. He finished his career as director of athletics, and he also served his city as boxing commissioner, baseball commissioner, and playground supervisor. The Knute Rockne Clubs of America named him College Athletic Director of the Year in 1962.
