Harold Halse was born in Stratford, London, on 1st January 1886. He played local football for Leyton, Wanstead, Barking Town and Clapton Orient before signing for Southend United. Halse was a great success at his new club scoring 91 goals in 64 appearances.

In March 1908 Halse joined Manchester United for a fee of £350. This was the maximum fee allowed at the time. Manchester United started off the 1907-08 season with three straight wins. They were then beaten 2-1 by Middlesbrough. However, this was followed by another ten wins and United quickly built up a good advantage over the rest of the First Division. However, Liverpool beat United 7-4 on 25th March, 1908.

Three days later Halse made his debut against Sheffield Wednesday. Halse scored a goal in the club's 4-1 victory. Halse kept his place for the rest of the season scoring 4 goals in 6 games. Manchester United went on to win the title by nine points.

The following season Halse scored 14 goals in 29 league games. Manchester United enjoyed a good run in the FA Cup. They beat Brighton & Hove Albion (1-0), Everton (1-0), Blackburn Rovers (6-1), Burnley (3-2) and Newcastle United (1-0) to reach the final. Newcastle, who went onto win the league that season, was obviously disappointed by being prevented from winning the double. However, the whole of the Newcastle team waited for 15 minutes in torrential rain aboard an open coach so they could applaud their conquerors after the game.

Halse got four goals during the successful cup run that got them to the final at Crystal Palace against Bristol City. As both clubs usually wore red, Bristol played in blue whereas Manchester United played in white shirts with a deep red "V". The game was disappointing and Sandy Turnbull scored the only goal in the 22nd minute when he followed up a shot by Halse that hit the bar. In two seasons Halse helped United win both the league title and the FA Cup.

As Garth Dykes pointed out in The United Alphabet: "Small and rather slight of build, he would often score quite unexpectedly, from apparently impossible positions, shooting with supreme confidence in his own powers as a top opportunist marksmen."

Halse won his only international cap in June 1909 when he was selected to play for England against Austria. He scored two goals in England's 8-1 victory but surprisingly he never played for his country again.

1909-10 was a disappointing season for Halse. He only scored 6 goals in 27 games. In June 1910 Ernest Mangnall purchased Enoch West from Nottingham Forest. He replaced Jimmy Turnbull in the attack and had a great season scoring 19 goals in 35 games. West formed a great partnership with Sandy Turnbull and together they scored more than half of the team's goals. Halse scored 10 goals in 25 league and cup games. On the last Saturday of the season Aston Villa led Manchester United by one point. United had to play third-place Sunderland at Old Trafford whereas Villa had to go to Liverpool.

Manchester United won their game 5-1. Charlie Roberts told the Manchester Saturday Post what happened next: "At the end of the game our supporters rushed across the ground in front of the stand to wait for the final news from Liverpool. Suddenly a tremendous cheer rent the air and was renewed again and again and we knew we were the champions once again." Aston Villa had been beaten 3-1 and Manchester United had won their second championship in four years.

The following season Manchester United finished in only 13th position. The only success that year was a 8-4 victory over Swindon Town in the Charity Cup. Harold Halse scored six of United's goals. Billy Meredith told the Manchester Football Chronicle: "Nobody else could get a kick of the ball but Halse and every time he scored he said to the Swindon goalkeeper, I'll be back in a minute."

Halse scored 50 goals in 124 league and cup games for Manchester United. However, in July 1912 he was sold to Aston Villa for £1,200. In October of that year he scored five goals in succession against Derby County. He also helped Villa win the 1913 FA Cup Final and finishing as runners-up to Manchester United in the 1910-11 season. Halse scored 21 goals in 31 games before being sold to Chelsea.

Although his new club failed to be challengers for the league title in the 1913-14 and 1914-15 seasons, he did win a runner-up medal in the 1915 FA Cup Final. Halse therefore became the first man to reach three finals with three different clubs.

Harold Halse's football career was interrupted by the First World War. Only 28 at the time, he was 33 before the Football League began again in 1919. Halse joined Charlton Athletic in 1921. He had scored 23 goals in 96 games at Chelsea.

Halse retired from football in May 1923. He worked as a scout for Charlton Athletic for a couple of years before managing a tobacconist shop at Walton-on-Naze.

Harold Halse died in Essex County Hospital, Colchester on 25th March 1949.

Halse History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Halse is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived on a neck of land in Devon. A neck of land is a narrow piece of land between two rivers near where they flow into the ocean, or a narrow piece of land that connects an isthmus or peninsula to the mainland.

"The family of Hals, or Als, are said to have been an ancient British tribe, so denominated from Alsius Duke of Devonshire, the father of Orgar unless we credit another account, which states them to have descended from John de Als, lord of the barton of Als, now Alse, in the parish of Buryan." [1]

Early Origins of the Halse family

The surname Halse was first found in Devon and Cornwall.

"The manor of Laneseley, [in the parish of Gulval, Cornwall] from which the parish derived its name, belonged at a very early period to the family of De Als, who are said to have taken their name from a manor called Alsa or Als, in the parish of Buryan. In 1266 Simon De Als gave this manor to the priory of St. Germans, for the health and salvation of his soul, that of his wife, and those of his ancestors and relations. It was a bargain with the prior and his canonical brethren, for the eternal happiness of the whole family. From this period until the dissolution, the prior and his successors claimed this manor, and with it the ecclesiastical income of the rectory, throughout the parish. But at the time of the Reformation, this property being seized by the crown, the manor was granted to Beaumont and Barry, from whom it passed to the family of Tripcony about the year 1565. By a descendant of this family it was mortgaged to Sir William Hals, of Fentongollan, who was lineally descended from De Alsa, its ancient possessor, and who was ancestor of Hals the historian. In this family it became the subject of much litigation and trouble, in consequence of some mortgages and sales, that led to a suit in chancery after which it was purchased by the Onslow family, in whom it is still vested." [1]

Early rolls revealed: Alfris Halls c. 1100 Robert Hals in the Pipe Rolls for Devon in 1182 and then later as a Knights Templar in Lincolnshire in 1185. [2]

In Somerset, the following were found listed 1 Edward III (during the first year of King Edward III's reign): Richard atte Halse John de Halse and John de Halse. [3]

"Halse was the name of an eminent family of Kenedon in Sherford parish, near Kingsbridge, during the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries to this family belonged a Justice of the Common Pleas and a Bishop of Lichfield, both of whom lived in the reign of Henry VI. Matthew Halse was a churchwarden of Littleham, Exmouth, in 1730, and the name still occurs in the town. Halse is a Somerset parish, and an old Taunton family bore the name in the 16th century." [4]

Halsey’s dating history: Full list of boyfriends and flings

Halsey has had a number of high-profile romances over the years.

From G-Eazy to Evan Peters, take let’s look back at the mom-to-be’s past relationships.

Another band member that Halsey allegedly dated is Andrew Taggart from The Chainsmokers. As fans already know the two musicians collaborated on the 2016 summer hit "Closer" and it was precisely that summer that the two were rumored to be more than just collaborators. Besides, who could forget that steamy 2016 MTV Video Music Award performance!

Next on the list is Hollywood star Jared Leto whom Halsey seemed very close with during 2016's Coachella. As always, both celebs kept quiet about their private lives but some of the photos — like the one above on the right — certainly indicated that something seemed to be going on between the two because friends don't really hug like that!


Round sea sponges in real life. SpongeBob's parents were both designed to look like them.

Harold has a gray mustache and wears a golden glasses with blue lenses. He is light brown with dark brown holes. He wears a white shirt, brown pants, a black and yellow belt, and a tall white hat with a brown stripe. His head, along with his wife's, is much rounder in appearance than SpongeBob's, making them look more like sea sponges, unlike SpongeBob, who is a squared-off tube sponge.


Harold usually seems to be a happy, cheerful fellow who likes to take care of SpongeBob with his wife, Margaret. He can also be a bit protective of his wife, as seen in "New Digs." He does, though, seem to like to spend time by himself, as seen in "BlackJack."

Harold on History | Historical Perspectives on Hypertension

The unveiling of the new 2017 High Blood Pressure Guideline at the AHA Scientific Sessions in Anaheim (see cover story) prompts a look back at the history of hypertension. After all, Confucius said: &ldquoStudy the past if you would define the future.&rdquo

Awareness of the clinical aspects of hypertension dates to antiquity. The Chinese Yellow Emperor&rsquos Classic of Internal Medicine (2600 BCE) noted: &ldquo&hellipIf too much salt is used in blood, the pulse hardens.&rdquo Treatment of &lsquohard pulse disease&rsquo during ancient times included acupuncture, venesection and bleeding by leeches. The relationship between the palpated pulse and the development of heart and brain afflictions was described by ancient Egyptian physicians in the Ebers Papyrus (1550 BCE).

Post-BCE, William Harvey first described the circulation of the blood in his book Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus (On the Motion of the Heart and Blood) in 1628. It was in 1733 that English clergyman Stephen Hales invented a manometer and made the first published measurements of arterial blood pressure in the horse.

The recognition of hypertension as a clinical entity came with the invention of the cuff-based mercury sphygmomanometer by Italian physician Scipione Riva-Rocci in 1896. He measured the peak systolic blood pressure by noting the cuff pressure at which the radial pulse was no longer palpable. In 1905, Russian physician Nikolai Korotkoff described the sounds that are heard when an artery is auscultated with a stethoscope while the sphygmomanometer cuff is deflated. These sounds, dubbed the Korotkoff sounds, helped to define systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements and clinical recording of blood pressure.

Between 1910 and 1914, physicians made headway in defining both essential hypertension (elevated blood pressure when no other cause could be determined) and malignant hypertension (a syndrome of severe hypertension associated with target organ damage and high mortality from strokes, heart failure or kidney failure). It wasn&rsquot until President Franklin D. Roosevelt that the impacts of untreated hypertension gained public attention.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt
(Library of Congress)

Roosevelt was documented as having hypertension at age 54, but did not receive treatment for another four years when he was prescribed phenobarbital and massage therapy for a blood pressure of 188/105 in 1941. In February 1945, Roosevelt had recorded blood pressures up to 260/150 at the time of the Yalta Conference, where he was noted to be in failing health with evidence of heart failure, including shortness of breath, orthopnea, lethargy and drowsiness. On the morning of April 12, 1945, a blood pressure of 300/190 was recorded after Roosevelt reported a severe occipital headache while sitting for a portrait session. He subsequently lost consciousness and died.

Roosevelt&rsquos death highlighted the fact that prior to World War II there were few effective antihypertensive drugs and available agents were poorly tolerated. Non-pharmacologic methods to treat hypertension included strict sodium restriction, while other treatments included injections of pyrogens such as typhoid bacilli and surgical methods such as sympathectomy and adrenalectomy. Sodium thiocyanate was the first chemical used for hypertension in the 1900s but toxicity and marginal effectiveness limited its use. Additionally, physicians did not uniformly recognize the need to aggressively treat this potentially lethal disease.

Despite actuarial data from insurance companies available from the 1930s demonstrating the relationship between hypertension and mortality from cardiovascular or renal disease, it was not until the 1950s that hypertension management became more widely practiced. Paul Dudley White noted in 1937 that: &ldquoHypertension may be an important compensatory mechanism which should not be tampered with, even were it certain that we could control it&hellip&rdquo Subsequent prospective longitudinal epidemiologic studies such as the Framingham Heart Study confirmed the risk of hypertension on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and the need for therapeutic intervention.

On the drug front, hexamethonium, hydralazine and reserpine were used after World War II. A breakthrough occurred in the 1950s with the introduction of the diuretic chlorothiazide, which was well tolerated and clearly prolonged life in hypertensive patients. British physician James Black developed beta blockers in the early 1960s. Calcium blockers subsequently followed. The discovery of the renin-angiotensin system led to the development of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, which then led to angiotensin-receptor blockers and renin inhibitors. With modern pharmacotherapy, we now have a powerful therapeutic arsenal to treat all forms of hypertension.

Until now, hypertension treatment guidelines were developed by the Joint National Commission (JNC) under the auspices of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health. The first JNC report was published in 1977 and focused on treating elevated diastolic blood pressures, with the last official JNC report issued in 2003 as the Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC 7). The ACC and AHA have assumed development of these guidelines with this month&rsquos release.

The history of contemporary hypertension management is an exciting story of a major successful effort in preventive cardiology. There is no doubt we will only continue to make progress, building on the research and efforts of those who have come before.

Il 28 marzo 1908 esordisce con il Manchester United giocando contro lo Sheffield Wednesday (4-1), realizzando anche una rete. A fine stagione vanta 4 gol in 6 partite, contribuendo alla vittoria del primo titolo inglese dei Red Devils. Nella stagione 1908-1909 il contributo di Halse è importante sia in campionato sia in FA Cup: in First Division risulta decisivo contro Liverpool (3-2, doppietta), Arsenal (1-0), Newcastle United (1-0), Notts County (4-3), mentre in FA Cup consente all'United di andare avanti grazie alle reti decisive contro Brighton (1-0), Everton (1-0) e Newcastle (1-0) permettendo alla società di arrivare alla finale, non giocata da Halse, poi vinta dall'United sul Bristol City per 1-0. Chiude la stagione con 18 reti in 35 partite.

Nella stagione successiva realizza una sola doppietta, il 2 aprile 1910, contro il Blackburn (2-0). Nell'annata 1910-1911 mette a segno reti importanti contro Bristol City (1-0), Newcastle (1-0) e Aston Villa (sfida persa 4-2, doppietta) contribuendo alla vittoria del secondo titolo inglese da parte dello United. Il 25 settembre 1909 Halse entra definitivamente nella storia: durante la supercoppa inglese del 1911 realizza sei reti contro lo Swindon Town (8-4), segnando il record del maggior numero di gol realizzati da un solo calciatore nella competizione. Nella sua ultima stagione a Manchester si fa notare nelle sfide contro Sheffield Wednesday (3-1, doppietta), Sheffield United (1-0) e Coventry City (5-1 in FA Cup), collezionando 18 gol in 31 partite.

Dopo 125 presenze e 56 gol lascia i Red Devils andando a Birmingham, sponda Aston Villa, squadra che per Halse sborsa £ 1.200. Il calciatore ripaga i Villans siglando 21 reti in 31 incontri di campionato e portando la squadra al successo in FA Cup nel 1913 contro il Sunderland (1-0). Nel 1913 si trasferisce al Chelsea dove rimane fino al 1921, giocando 111 partite e segnando 25 reti in tutte le competizioni. Nel 1921 passa al Charlton, rimanendo a Londra, prima di concludere la carriera nel 1923.

Il primo giugno 1909 debutta in Nazionale giocando contro l'Austria (1-8), sfida durante la quale mette a segno una doppietta.
