Lou E. Marsh
Birth: 1879
Death: 1936

Sportswriter, NHL referee. Lou E. Marsh started his newspaper career as a delivery boy when he was 11 years old. Athletic as a boy, Marsh gravitated to
sports reporting and rose through the ranks to become editor of the department. Along the way he refereed countless amateur hockey games. His reputation as a referee eventually led him to the National Hockey League and the honor of officiating the first NHL game in New York City in December 1925. Marsh was the introducer of small outboard racing boats, called sea fleas, to Toronto. A heart condition, which led to his sudden death, forced him to cut back on his athletic endeavours; however, that did not stop him from rescuing a child from the icy waters of Lake Ontario in 1934. The 'Lou Marsh Award' is given annually to Canada's top athletes.
