Sports careerEdit

Born in Toronto, Harvey Pulford moved to Ottawa at an early age. Pulford joined the Ottawa Hockey Club in 1893, playing as a defenceman. In his first season, the Pulford played in the first Stanley Cup finals game against Montreal HC. Pulford was a member of the "Ottawa Silver Seven" club which won the Cup in March 1903 and held it until March 1906. Pulford retired in 1908, the year that Ottawa became professional. In 1931, Pulford would be involved with the club again, given an option to buy the Ottawa club, then known as the Senators, and move it to Baltimore, Maryland, but the purchase did not go through.

Pulford was a charter member of the Hockey Hall of Fame (1945) and the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame (1966). He was, with Russell Bowie, Harry Westwick and Alf Smith, one of the final active hockey players who had played in the 19th century.
