Biographical Narrative

Colby E. "Babe" Slater, was born on April 30, 1896 in Berkeley, California to Louise and John Slater. Babe, the youngest child, had two brothers and a sister. The Slaters lived in San Francisco before moving to Berkeley. The family's fortunes reversed when John Slater, a prosperous sea captain, died in 1908. Babe and his older brother Norman attended Berkeley High School, played on the school's athletic teams, and participated in sporting events on the University of California campus. In 1911 and 1912, Babe Slater led the Berkeley High School rugby team to county, regional, and state titles.
In 1914, Babe Slater enrolled at the University Farm School in Davis (now the University of California, Davis). The University Farm School, a branch of the University of California's College of Agriculture, offered a three-year course in the principles and practices of agriculture. While at the University Farm, Slater starred in rugby, football, basketball, and baseball. He served as Basketball Team Captain, Junior Class President, House Manager for the Calpha Fraternity, Thanksgiving Day Special Chairman, Picnic Day Parade Chairman, and Picnic Day General Chairman.
When Slater graduated from the University Farm School in May 1917, the First World War was underway. America declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917. Slater registered for the newly instated draft in June 1917, enlisted in the United States Army in September, and was promoted to Corporal in November. In the spring of 1918, he led a group of Yolo County "Liberty Boys" as they traveled by train from Woodland, California to Camp Lewis, American Lake, Washington, where they underwent intensive training for war. Slater's company arrived in Southampton, England on July 19, 1918 and then spent a few days at a rest camp in Cherbourg, France. Slater served with the Medical Corps, and he and his company were "on the move" from July to November in France and Belgium, tending to wounded soldiers, evacuating them from battlefields to hospitals, and setting up dressing stations. Often they came under fire from German aircraft and shelling since they had to work near the front lines. On November 11, 1918, an armistice was signed between the Allies and Germany, and the fighting stopped. Slater's company remained in France until April 1919, when they were able to sail back to America. From New York, Slater and other returning soldiers traveled by rail to California. On May 9, 1919, they received a heroes' welcome in San Francisco. Slater's military service ended May 23, 1919.
After Slater returned from the war, he raised sheep, hogs, and feed in Woodland, California, where he and his friend Robert (Bob) Lockhart managed a section of the Conaway Ranch. Still an outstanding athlete, Slater played and coached for the Woodland, Yolo Post No. 77, American Legion's football and basketball teams. Slater led Woodland's American Legion football team to the Northern California Championship in 1927.
Due to the soaring popularity of American football, rugby had virtually disappeared from the United States except in California. In 1920 when the Olympic Games Committee allowed the formation of a United States Olympic Rugby Team, it was no surprise that every team member was a Californian. Slater was one of the first players chosen for the team. The 1920 Olympic Games were held in Antwerp, Belgium. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team was the only team that dared to challenge the powerful French team, and the French eventually condescended to play the inexperienced Americans. On September 5, 1920, the Americans won gold medals by unexpectedly beating the French, 8-0.
In 1924, the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team was again made up of Californians. Babe Slater was chosen as team captain. His brother Norman was also on the team. At the 1924 Paris Olympic Games, only three teams entered the rugby competition: France, Romania, and the United States. Although the Americans had been well received in London, where they had played three exhibition games against English rugby teams, the French public was hostile toward the U.S. team. The French rugby team, regarded as the most skilled in the world, easily beat the Romanians, 61-3 on May 4, 1924. On May 11th, the United States defeated Romania 37-0. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team was mainly made up of basketball and American football players who did not have much experience playing rugby, yet their size, fitness, and athletic ability made them formidable opponents. On May 18, 1924, the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team won gold medals by defeating France 17-3 at Colombes Stadium. Angry French fans rioted in the stands, assaulted American supporters, and jeered the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team during the medal ceremony. After the American victory, the French government apologized for the behavior of the French fans. Due in part to the fans' violence, rugby was not included in future Olympic games.
Circa 1927, Babe Slater moved from Woodland to Clarksburg, California and bought rich farming land located in the Holland Land Company subdivision. Slater farmed there for close to thirty years raising crops including: alfalfa, asparagus, barley, beet and carrot seeds, dry beans, peas, safflower, sugar beets, tomatoes, and wheat. Norman Slater left his job as a mechanic for Associated Oil Company in San Francisco and moved his family to Clarksburg so that he could farm with his brother. Babe Slater married Virginia Cave (1909-1991) in 1932, and they had one daughter, Marilyn. In 1955, Marilyn graduated from the University of California, Davis. She married Richard McCapes in August 1955. Soon after his daughter married, Slater retired from farming.
Slater was active in many University of California, Davis organizations including the Cal Aggie Alumni Association, Friends of the Davis Campus, the UC Davis Alumni Agricultural Advisory Committee, the UC Davis Alumni Scholarship Foundation, and the secret society Sword and Sandals. He and Mrs. Slater were often honored guests for Picnic Day at UC Davis. Slater was a Picnic Day parade judge in 1956. In 1956 and 1957, he arranged for reunions of the classes of 1916 and 1917 to be held on the UC Davis campus during Picnic Day.
Also active in the local community, Slater was a member of the Woodland, Yolo Post No. 77, American Legion and the Woodland Elks Lodge, No. 1299. He was elected president of the Yolo County Farm Bureau in 1951 and 1952, and, over the years, he and Mrs. Slater went on many Farm Bureau trips including travel to Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Japan, and Mexico.
Colby E. Babe Slater died on January 30, 1965. Later that year, the Calpha agricultural fraternity established the Colby E. "Babe" Slater Memorial Athletic Award at the University of California, Davis. This annual award and the "Babe" Slater Perpetual Athletic Trophy went each spring to the Davis student selected as Athlete of the Year. In addition, Slater was posthumously inducted into the Woodland Athletic Hall of Fame (1973) and the Cal Aggies Athletic Hall of Fame (1980) at the University of California, Davis.

Dan Carroll, an Australian gold medalist of the 1908 games and naturalized U.S. citizen, was both player and coach for the team.
  Due to the popularity of American football, rugby had almost disappeared from the United States except for California. The Olympic Games Committee granted Californians permission to form the United States Olympic Rugby Team for the upcoming Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium.
  June 30. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team sailed from New York on an overcrowded Army transport ship, the Sherman, arriving in Antwerp, Belgium thirteen days later.

  Circa April-May. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team was the target of French hostility. After immigration officials mistakenly refused the team entry into France and the American players forced their way off ship and onto dry land, the French press labeled the team, "street fighters and saloon brawlers." When American rugby team members ventured outside their Paris hotel, they were insulted and even spat upon by the French.
  Circa April 28. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team arrived in Paris. The team was made up of superb athletes including California football and basketball All-Americans. Many had never played rugby, but Coach Austin relied on his team's size, speed, stamina, and raw athletic ability to compensate for its technical deficiencies.
  Circa May. Cash and other possessions were stolen from the U.S. Olympic Team's dressing room while they were at practice.
  May 11. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team defeated Romania 37-0. The French crowd booed every American score, but both the American and French press noted the lack of violence and skilled nature of American play, along with the Americans' size and fitness.
  May 18. The U.S. Olympic Rugby Team won the gold medal by defeating France 17-3 at Colombes Stadium, which was filled with 50,000 spectators. The French rugby team was expected to easily beat the inexperienced American team. During the game, the French were devastated by American football-style tackling. The hits were within the rules of the game. The humiliating defeat of the French team angered their fans, who rioted in the stands and assaulted American supporters. The French fans threw bottles and rocks at the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team and tried to break through the tall wire fence that surrounded the playing field. Tens of thousand of hostile onlookers jeered the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team during the medal ceremony, the raising of the American flag, and the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. After the ceremony, the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team was rescued from the rioting crowd by dozens of gendarmes. Due in part to the bad behavior of the French crowd and the lack of international participation in Olympic rugby matches, rugby was not included in future Olympic games. The French government later apologized for the behavior of the French fans, and soon after, the French press began to portray the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team as heroes.

  March. The Woodland Democrat organized "The Babe Slater Friendship Fund" as a testimonial of friendship and token of the community's appreciation of the modest all-around sportsman. The Friendship Fund allowed a maximum donation of fifty cents. Slater was so popular that 510 people (including 130 grammar school boys) contributed to the fund, which was used to buy Slater a gold watch and chain, an elk's tooth charm, and a gold card and receipt case.
  Linn Farish of Woodland, California had played on the Stanford Rugby Team and was also chosen as a member of the U.S. Olympic Rugby Team.

Scrapbook Series 6 1924

Physical Description: 46 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This scrapbook was compiled by Babe Slater's mother, Louise. It contains newspaper clippings, photographs, and ephemera related to Slater winning an Olympic gold medal as captain of the United States Olympic Rugby Team during the 1924 Paris Olympic Games. When the collection was processed, items were removed from the scrapbook and placed in acid-free folders. The scrapbook pages were scanned before they were disassembled in order to keep a record of the original positions of items on the pages. Preservation photocopies of newspaper clippings were also made.
