A Grand Forks, N.D., native, Mr. Edmund Boe has been characterized by many longtime observers of Sioux athletics as one of the greatest all around athletes UND has ever had in its 87 years of competition.

He lettered as a standout football end three times, 1924-27, serving as team captain his junior and senior years. He lettered in basketball four times, 1923-27, again serving as captain his junior and senior season. He also won three letters in track.

Boe was considered a pro prospect pitcher by the St. Louis Cardinals.

He was UND's first three-time All Conference basketball player.

As with many athletes of his era, Mr. Boe was a campus leader and widely respected on and off the field. Mr. Boe has been associated in the family real estate and insurance business with his brother, Harold Boe, also a UND alumnus. Mr. Boe long has been an ardent and financial supporter of not only UND athletics, but also the university.
