Commentaires : Presented to NB Sports Hall of Fame Honoured Member Dr. John Meagher. Robert Tait McKenzie was born in Almonte in 1867. His father Reverend William McKenzie was the minister of the Free Presbyterian Church in Ramsay township. When he was only three or four years old Robert would meet James Naismith at the farm of Robert Young. They would remain friends their entire lives. McKenzie spent a good deal of his childhood and youth on the Young farm. McKenzie entered McGill University in the fall of 1885, at the age of 18. It was here that McKenzie came into his own and discovered the true power of physical activity in Major Frederick S. Barnjum's gymnasium. McKenzie became obsessed with athletics and took to them naturally. Upon graduation McKenzie took charge of physical training at McGill when he was appointed the school's Medical Director. It was at this time that he also assisted James Naismith with the operation of the Gymnasium. In 1890, when Naismith graduated, McKenzie took over as Instructor of Gymnastics At McGill he was also Demonstrator and Lecturer in Anatomy. Requiring a set of visual aids for his lecture and article on the facial expressions of athletes, he soon unearthed his third profession, that of sculptor. McKenzie continued to sculpt and between 1905 and 1909, he had completed the Competitor, The Supple Juggler, The Boxer and the Relay. All were done without the use of measurements. In 1920, McKenzie joined the Philadelphia Skating Club. Here he would sketch and observe the skaters. He had always had an interest in skating which stemmed from his boyhood days on the Indian River.
