Jack Learment was from Truro, Nova Scotia. He attended Dalhousie University from 1906-1910, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree. While Learment was at Dalhousie, he was a great competitor in track and field, rugby, and hockey.
Learment played hockey for the 1907-1908 Halifax Crescents Hockey club, along with Hall of Famers Frank Condon, Jack Condon, Neddie Weave, and Roy Isnor. That year, the Crescents Hockey Team won the Nova Scotia Senior Hockey championship by defeating the North Sydney Victoria’s. Learment played centre for the Dalhousie University Hockey Team in 1908, and still managed to find enough time to play for the Halifax Crescents that same season.
Along with playing competitive hockey and rugby, Jack was also a great trap shooter with both a rifle and pistol. On July 20, 1923, Jack captured the high gun trophy in the Hector Celebration Trapshooting Tournament at the Pictou Golf Club. He shot 92 breaks out of 100 targets. An all-around sportsman, Learment was also competitive in track and field. Learment later went on to work for the Dominion Ammunition Company. He passed away December 17, 1942. Jack Learment is an Original Sport Hall of Fame Inductee.
