The 1932 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the X Olympiad, was a major worldwide multi-athletic event which was celebrated in 1932 in Los Angeles, California, United States. No other cities made a bid to host these Olympics. Held during the worldwide Great Depression, many nations and athletes were unable to pay for the trip to Los Angeles. Fewer than half the participants of the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam returned to compete in 1932. Even U.S. President Herbert Hoover skipped the event.
Alfred Henry Phillips (1908 –1994) was a Canadian diver who competed in the 1928 Summer Olympics and in the 1932 Summer Olympics. He finished fourth in the 1932 3 metre springboard event and again seventh in the 1932 10 metre platform contest.
