Beaumont Trophy
(Golden Bears Swimming MVP)

One of the school’s older sports trophies, it was started in 1954-55 as an award for the U of A Male Swimmer with the “Best General Record” for Sportsmanship, Leadership, Progress and ability. Like the Golden Bears wrestling trophy and separate boxing trophy, it was donated to the University Athletics Board by Wally J. Beaumont, a Law graduate who represented the U of A in both wrestling and boxing during his undergraduate years. He was also a skilled pilot who instructed at Edmonton Flying Club into his golden years until he passed away in the mid-1970s.

Nick Carter Trophy
(Pandas Swimming MVP)

Originally from Port Colborne, Ont., Nick Carter was a volunteer swimming coach in Edmonton from the late 1920s to the early 1950s, based out of the West Edmonton outdoor pool (now Oliver Pool). He is described as a compassionate, gentle person with a mission to develop talented young women and men into the best athletes they could be, while making sure all children stayed fit and healthy. He was in the real estate business, though his connection to the U of A was simply that many of his friends or students were at one time involved with the Bears and Pandas. Born in the late 1800s, he lived in Edmonton most of his life until he passed away in 1965.
