William R. Carr '66, the fifth leading scorer in Brown lacrosse history, was a first-team All-American choice in 1966. During his three varsity seasons, Carr scored 56 goals and 67 assists for 123 points. He still holds the Brown record for most assists in a season with 47 in 1966 and for points in a season (31-47-78), also in 1966. The former Beverly (Mass.) High star was a two-time All-Ivy, a two-time All-New England, and was co-captain of the team in his senior season. He twice led all scorers in New England. In high school, Carr had played football, basketball, and baseball - but never lacrosse. Coach Cliff Stevenson, however, saw in his a potentially great lacrosse player. He was quick, shifty, and had well-coordinated hands. He had the agility to play behind the offensive goal and the power to bull through the defenses when he drew a crowd. Carr was also a fine halfback for Coach John McLaughry's football teams. He scored two touchdowns - including the winning one with less than a minute to play on a pass from Bob Hall - as the Bruins defeated Cornell, 31-28 in 1964. He received his M.B.A. from the Wharton School of Finance in 1970. Kappa Psi. Carr is now a marketing representative with IBM in New York City.
