But this was not the end of Howard Drew's incredible running and academic careers. He would attend the University of Southern California where he won several national titles, set collegiate and world records in the 100 yards, (9.6 sec.), but with the Berlin Olympics of 1916 cancelled because of WWI, there was no second chance for international laurels. Drew served in the Quartermaster Corps in France but did not compete in the 1919 Inter-Allies competion or Pershing Games in Europe. Charley Paddock would establish himself there as a 19 year old in Vincennes, France winning the 100m in 10.8 and the 200 in 21.6. Drew would finish up at USC and then go on to law school at Drake University. He competed indoors until 1920. After law school he would return to the East Coast and be called to the bar in Connecticut and Ohio. He eventually became state Attorney for Connecticut and then the first black judge in the state.
