maybe should given more info, but I was thinking Steve, Julio and Mark and I intended have people include the 100.

So my 'real' question ... do others match these guys versatility? i.e., .Lon Meyers ... historically (or otherwise) ... such as 100-200-400-800 .... seems like this may have been queried before ...

Matt Scherer:
10.41, 20.89, 45.19, 1:46.11

Perhaps a more challenging task (possible?) would be to stretch it from the 100 to the 1500/mile with marks included. Just a question - I have no idea, other than Hahn, who would qualify.

Archie Hahn . . . in the 880? Or even the 440?

Are you thinking of Lon Myers?

Wasn't it Jim Kemp who was competitive from 220 to 880y back in the '60s?

Kemp was competitive from the 100 through the 400 outdoors, and also in the 600 yard run indoors. There was a great T&Fn cover photo of a 600 with him, Evans and McGrady. I don't recall him running the half, or if he did, he wasn't nearly as successful.

I'll answer my own question. According to my copy of Melvyn Watman's "Encyclopedia of Athletics" his bests were:
100 - 10.6
200 - 21.5
400 - 46.0
800 - 1:46.6
1000 - 2:21.5
1500 - 4:01.0
HJ - 5' 8-1/2"
LJ - 22' 6-1/2"

Your memory is way better than mine, but that sounds right. I distinctly recall that he had a truly unusual range.

I went on-line to try to find out about Kemp and the half, but didn't see anything. Thanks for the info.
I've been thinking that maybe some quarter mile hurdlers ventured into these realms, like Ron Whitney but don't believe he had 200 speed. I couldn't find any half mile marks for Bill Toomey, but figured he could run a good 200 to go with his 4:12+ 1500. Harald Schmid must have had pretty good speed over the 200.
I always felt that Danny Everett should have given the half a serious try. History repeats as I'm one who would like to see what Wariner could do in the 800. But I now doubt that he will, especially with the rise of Rudisha.
