Howard Hill was born November 13, 1899, in Wilsonville, Alabama. He played baseball at Auburn from 1920 to 1923 and went on to become the World's Greatest Archer. He won 196 consecutive field archery tournaments between 1926 and 1942. He won the International field meet in 1942. He took more than 2,000 game animals and 1,000 reptiles and fish in 12 countries. He was the first man to kill a bull elephant with a bow and arrow. He did practically all the archery stunts in Hollywood movies in the 1940's and 1950's. Howard Hill's domination of archery earned him a place in the Helms Hall of Fame. He is deceased.
