Alexander Cobb Fisher - Athlete

A. C. “Bud” Fisher was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, April 6th, 1914 and was educated in that town. He participated in all types of sports as a boy, excelling in hockey, football and broomball. Bud started curling in 1936 and became one of Newfoundland’s best curlers, over many years winning the Newfoundland Curling Championships (The British Consols) five times; in 1952 at second stone position and in 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1962 as skip of his own rink. Bud became well known as a curler throughout the province of Newfoundland and all across Canada.

He is the only Newfoundlander ever to skip his own rink four times in the Brier, which is the Canadian Curling Championships. His record of four wins and six losses in the 1958 Championship has been equalled in recent years but not, as yet, surpassed.

Bud has been one of Newfoundland’s best Ambassadors, a good Sportsman, a real fine Curler, and Gentleman.
