Athletic Hall of Fame 1994 - Hartley

James T. Hartley

Following graduation from Alfred in 1934, James T. Hartley returned to Pennsylvania to pursue a career in agriculture.  In addition to operating the family dairy farm, he began a poultry raising business.  James was a successful cattle dealer in both Pennsylvania and New York and was also an avid fisherman and hunter. 

He played football, baseball and basketball in high school and college, despite a childhood bout with polio that left him with some physical deformity.

He married Adrienne Parker and they had two children, Alex and Anna Louise.  He retired in 1975 after selling the dairy operation.  James died in July 1977.
