Career highlights

Walter Henry "Dick" Lee (19 March 1889 – 11 September 1968) was an Australian rules footballer in the (then) Victorian Football League (VFL).

Lee was one of the first great forwards in Australian Football with an ability to win the ball on the ground or in the air.

In 1996 Lee was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame[1] and two years later was named in the Collingwood team of the Century.
