Dwight Davis was the Secretary of War in the Coolidge Administration and won the Distinguished Service Cross in World War I.
But that’s not why his name is recognized today.
In 1900, he started a lawn tennis tournament that would become the largest international tennis competition. It is now known as the Davis Cup.

Trump UN Speech Means MAGA — In a speech that JFK or Reagan would have been glad to give President Trump, this morning (Sept. 19) condemned tyranny, communism and corruption at the United Nations.
Squirming in their seats were the delegates from Iran and North Korea.
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” he said.
His condemnation of Iranian terrorism received applause as did his condemnation of the Venezuelan regime.
He also condemned unrestricted immigration and global trade deals.
Thank you President Trump. You are a breath of fresh air after the last two decades much less last eight years.
If you missed it, the speech should soon be available at WhiteHouse.gov.
