Wescott E. S. Moulton '31 was one of the most colorful and exciting players in Brown's hockey history. He was captain of the undefeated freshman team and also earned numerals in football and baseball. In his days on the ice, the emphasis was on the individual - and Moulton stood out. He had a magnetic quality, and when he took off down the ice with the puck the fans would come alive. Moulton handled the stick as though the puck as attached to it. A fearless player, the Williston Academy graduate's specialty was splitting the defense, either barreling right through or hurdling the defenders. The Boston Post selected Moulton as the outstanding hockey player in New England in 1931, the year he was named to the All-American team. Returning to Brown in 1946, Moulton was instrumental in the revival of hockey and coached at his Alma Mater through 1952. His teams were 53-38, with Ivy League titles in 1950 and 1951 and a second place finish in the NCAA Tournament at Denver in 1951.
