Abstract:

Track and field athlete Claude Alex Walton was born August l3, 1913, in Marshall, Texas, to Claude Walton and Jenny V. Walton. Walton was a member of the basketball and track teams at West High School in Denver, Colorado. In 1932, he entered the University of Colorado-- one of six minority students—and became the first African American varsity athlete in the history of the university. He set the school record in the discus throw with a mark of 141 ft. 2 ½ inches, which qualified him to participate in the 1935 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) track meet in Berkeley, California. At this event, his throw of 157 ft., 11 inches, second in the nation, distinguished him as the university’s first All-American athlete. At 95 years old, Walton was inducted into the University of Colorado Hall of Fame in October of 2008. He passed away on March 24, 2014 at the age of 100.
