Haskell Noyes (July 22, 1886 – December 8, 1948)[1] was an American college basketball player and coach as well as a noted conservationist.

Born into a well-to-do family of Milwaukee, Wisconsin,[2] Noyes attended Yale University from 1904 to 1908. He played for their basketball team and was the captain for his final two seasons. As a senior in 1907–08, Noyes was selected as a consensus All-American by the Helms Athletic Foundation.[3]

After graduation, Noyes spent the next three years in his home state, serving as the head coach of the University of Wisconsin–Madison's basketball team.[4] In three seasons in charge of the Badgers, Noyes compiled a 26–15 overall record.[4] Two years later, he found himself in charge of Yale's team. For the 1913–14 season, his only as their head coach, Yale recorded an 11–7 record.[4]

During his time in Wisconsin, Noyes became greatly interested in conserving the environment.[2] And although he had earned a law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School, he decided to pursue his passion.[2] In 1926, he proposed a law that centralized conservationism in Wisconsin under a director and six unpaid commissioners.[2] In 1930, he established the Haskell Noyes Conservation Warden Efficiency Award, which is still given annually to the person selected as the top Warden in Wisconsin.[2]

Noyes died on December 8, 1948, several days after falling and fracturing his skull.[5] He was 62 years old. In 2000, he was posthumously inducted into the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame.[2]
