Career highlights and awards

Edward Morgan Lewis (25 December 1872 – 23 May 1936), otherwise known as Ted Lewis, was a Welsh-born, American Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher as well as a professor of English literature, academic administrator, the tenth president of the Massachusetts Agricultural College and twelfth president of the University of New Hampshire.

Nicknamed "The Pitching Professor," Ted Lewis was one of only three Welsh-born players to break into major league baseball in the U.S. (the others being Jimmy Austin and Peter Morris). He was 23 years old when he debuted on 6 July 1896, with the Boston Beaneaters. After the 1901 season, he retired from baseball to teach full-time at Columbia University and later at Williams College. He became a prominent educator, eventually serving as president of Massachusetts State College, 1926–27, and the University of New Hampshire from 1927 until his death in Durham, New Hampshire. He is buried in Durham Cemetery.
