Ottawa Citizen - - WINTER OLYMPICS -

The 1932 Win­ter Olympics host­ing bid by Lake Placid was led by or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee pres­i­dent God­frey Dewey, whose fa­ther, Melvil, in­vented the Dewey Dec­i­mal Clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tem for or­ga­niz­ing li­brary books.

Due to in­clement weather, the four-man bob­sled com­pe­ti­tion was held af­ter the clos­ing cer­e­monies.

Canada’s medal count rock­eted to seven. Apart from a gold in men’s hockey, we claimed sil­ver in men’s speed­skat­ing and five bronzes, in speed and fig­ure skat­ing.
