Class of 1990: Athlete
Canada’s premier figure skater of the 1920s and 30s, Toronto’s Montgomery (Bud) Wilson amassed an unprecedented 18 Canadian and 10 North American titles competing in the men’s, pairs and fours events. His silver-medal victory in the men’s category at the 1932 World Championships was the first by a Canadian. A three-time Olympian, Wilson’s bronze medal performance at the 1932 Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid marked the first Olympic figure skating medal won by a Canadian, and the first by a North American male. Following his outstanding career, Wilson dedicated 20 years developing many fine young skaters.
