About Harold James Pettegrove

Harold James Pettegrove was a member of the MIT Class of 1970, but died in 1969 before finishing his degree in metallurgy. The Harold J. Pettegrove Award symbolizes MIT’s ongoing interest in the ideals represented by intramural sports in an academic community. The intramural program at the Institute embraces dozens of sports and thousands of athletes at all levels of competition. The fact that a balanced and rigorous athletics program flourishes at the nation’s leading technological university is an expression of MIT’s commitment to the philosophy best expressed by President Stratton during the period of Mr. Pettegrove’s attendance: “Society asks more than sheer intellectual ability - it demands also moral hardiness, self-discipline, a competitive spirit, and other qualities that in more old-fashioned terms we might simply call character.”
