Although the public didn’t care about two dollars, the Amateur Athletic Union, and its secretary James Edward Sullivan, were determined to strip the uppity Indian of his Gold Medals. Thorpe wrote a letter to Sullivan pleading for mercy – but of course, he got none. After all, he was just an Indian! Thorpe wrote plaintively: “I hope I will be partly excused by the fact that I was simply an Indian schoolboy and did not know all about such things. In fact, I did not know that I was doing wrong, because I was doing what I knew several other college men had done, except that they did not use their own names ..”
The AAU happily decided to take Thorpe’s amateur status retroactively, followed in short order by the International Olympic Committee, which unanimously voted to strip Thorpe of his Olympic titles, medals and awards. The AAU and IOC did not bother to follow their own rules for disqualification of course. The rulebook for the 1912 Olympics stated that protests had to be made ‘within’ 30 days from the closing ceremonies of the games.” The first newspaper reports did not appear until January 1913, about six months after the Stockholm Games. But rules did not exist to protect someone like Jim Thorpe.
Thorpe went on after winning Gold Medals in two sports he had never competed in before a few months prior to the Olympics, to play professional baseball for six years, and then professional football for eight years. After his athletic career was over, Thorpe struggled to keep a job and provide for his family. His restless and impetuous nature made it hard for him to work a non-sports-related job and never held any job for more than a short period. He loved the outdoors too much to be confined at a desk. At his heart, Thorpe was the wild kid who ran 18 miles every day home from school to see his family, and worked with his beloved wild horses.
