Harry Morse was very proud to be an Actonian. In the late 40's and early 50's, Acton High School Athletics were developing an identity. The foundation of that identity was personified by the abilities and leadership of Harry Morse. Harry was an outstanding baseball and basketball player at Acton High. In addition to his athletic abilities, the aforementioned leadership was evident as he was elected Class President both his Junior and Senior years.
As the result of Harry's attitude and skill, and the enthusiasm of first year coach John Winton, Acton won the Wachusett League Title and the State Small School Class D Championship. The team was invited to the select Tech Tourney at the Boston Garden. After graduation in 1951, Harry went to the Tilton School where he played football, basketball and baseball. From there he attended the University of New Hampshire before enlisting in the U.S. Army where he played baseball for the Championship Army team. Harry's pride in Acton continued in his adult life as he served the town loyally on the Regional School Committee, Acton Water District Commissioner and Charter Member of the Jaycees. Harry was also voted All-Time Third Baseman of the Acton Twi-lite Softball League. Harry passed away October of 1992. His legacy are his seven grandchildren, his children Cathy, Burt and Maryanne, and his beloved wife Jean. Acton came second, his family came first. His family wishes to convey to all how very proud Harry would have been to be elected to The Hall of Fame.
