Charles Waldstein competed in the Olympics as a shooter like the Paine brothers, but he did not place. While the others on this list continued to be known in their individual sports, he moved on to teach classical archaeology at Cambridge and in Athens at the American School of Classical Studies, and he directed a number of excavations, including Aristotle’s tomb.
