Born in New Jersey on September 17, 1896, Harry Hamlin Kretzler was the son of Henry and Emma (Beam) Kretzler.  Harry’s father died in 1906, and by 1909 Emma had moved to Nebraska with Harry and his two younger sisters.  Harry attended the University of Nebraska in the late 1910s to early 1920s and was on the track team.  After graduating from the medical college, he moved to the Seattle, Washington area.  He spent his career practicing medicine.  Harry H. Kretzler died on December 31, 1982.
