Herder Memorial Trophy 2016
March 18, 2016
The Telegram’s connection to the Herder goes back to the very beginning. As former Telegram publisher Stephen R. Herder wrote in May 1980, “There were seven Herder brothers, sons of W.J. Herder who started The Evening Telegram in 1879. All seven were hockey ‘stars’ (if you don’t mind my saying so), though the only one I really remember was my own father, Ralph, who taught me to skate on Rennies River in St. John’s in the mid-1930s.
“The Herder Memorial Trophy is in memory of (in order of age) Arthur, William, Douglas, Augustus and Hubert Herder,” casualties of the First World War.
