1933: Dental School “Dents” – Baltimore Amateur Hockey League Champs

The Stanley Cup Final is heating up with the Las Vegas Golden Knights headed to the Washington Capitals this week.  The Capitals are looking to bring the Stanley Cup to the D.C./Maryland area for the first time in their history.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eighty-five years ago the University of Maryland Dental School’s ice hockey team (the Maryland Dents) made their own history by winning the Baltimore Amateur Ice Hockey League championship.   While the University of Maryland, Baltimore does not currently have an NCAA sports team, the campus has had its share of sports teams in the past.  The Maryland Dents, though short-lived (they played from 1932 to 1935) enjoyed a whirlwind of success, earning the title in their second year of play.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perhaps it was a search for job security that led to the success of the team, after all, hockey players tend to need a lot of dental work.  More likely, it was the group of students who led the team, which included players from traditional hockey outlets like New England and Canada. Perhaps the most important player for the Dents was Captain Fred Cuddy, class of 1935.  Cuddy was from Providence, Rhode Island and had played in the Rhode Island Amateur League, and for Cranston High School and Hebron Academy before attending the University of Maryland Dental School.  In their championship season, Cuddy led the league in points.  Perhaps not surprisingly, after Fred Cuddy graduated hockey stopped appearing in The Mirror, the Dental School’s yearbook, as a sport.

While short-lived, ice hockey at the University of Maryland, Baltimore was hugely successful and popular.  The Dents appeared in the playoffs/championship game three out of four seasons.  At the conclusion of the first season, a testimonial dinner was given in the team’s honor and instilled in all a sense of school spirit.

Discover and Share Data with the New UMB Data Catalog

 

 

 

 

The HS/HSL is proud to introduce the UMB Data Catalog, a searchable and browsable collection of records describing datasets generated by UMB researchers. The UMB Data Catalog promotes research collaboration and data sharing by facilitating the discovery of datasets that may be otherwise hard to find or unavailable from data repositories. Rather than functioning as a repository to store data, the Data Catalog provides information about datasets, including a description of the dataset, keywords, file format and size, access rights, and links to associated articles. With the UMB Data Catalog, researchers can describe their data and make it discoverable, but they are not required to share their data. Instead, the Catalog allows users to request data access through an author, an administrator, or a repository. By allowing researchers to identify common research interests and by supporting the sharing and reuse of research data, the UMB Data Catalog has the capacity to promote interdisciplinary collaboration.

The University of Maryland, Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL), is a member of the Data Catalog Collaboration Project (DCCP), along with New York University (NYU); the University of Pittsburgh; the University of Virginia; the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and Duke University. Members run their own installations of the Data Catalog, developed by NYU, but work together to share and improve system design, content curation, and outreach efforts.

The HS/HSL thanks the researchers who have contributed to the UMB Data Catalog during its initial development phase.

  • Sergei P. Atamas, MD, PhD, School of Medicine
  • Peter Doshi, PhD, School of Pharmacy
  • Corey Shdaimah, LLM, PhD, School of Social Work
  • Jay Unick, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work

Help us build the UMB Data Catalog! If you are interested in submitting a dataset, have a suggestion for additional datasets to add, or need more information about the project, please Contact Us.

The UMB Data Catalog was developed by the University of Maryland, Health Sciences and Human Services Library in part with Federal funds from the National Library of MedicineNational Institutes of HealthDepartment of Health and Human Services, under cooperative agreement number UG4LM012340 with the University of Maryland, Health Sciences and Human Service Library.
