The famous economist Ronald Coase passed away at the age of 102. The NY Times says he was born in England in 1910 and his father was "an amateur athlete of some renown." Does anyone know any more details about his father?

I got the answer on the Nobel Prize bio: the dad was not in Athletics but was a lawn bowler who represented Great Britain in international competition.
