Edward Morgan Lewis (December 25, 1872, in Machynlleth, Wales – May 23, 1936 in Durham, New Hampshire)

Nicknamed "The Pitching Professor," Ted Lewis was one of only three Welsh-born players to break into major league baseball in the U.S. (the others being Jimmy Austin and Peter Morris). He was 23 years old when he debuted on July 6, 1896, with the Boston Beaneaters. After the 1901 season, he retired from baseball to teach full-time at Columbia University and later at Williams College. He became a prominent educator, eventually serving as president of Massachusetts State College, 1926-27, and the University of New Hampshire from 1927 until his death in Durham, New Hampshire. He is buried in Durham Cemetery.
