The above image is from Henry Uihlein II's scrapbook, and praises his work as President of the Lake Placid Skating Association (the former name of the Lake Placid Speed Skating Club).
Prominent members of the Lake Placid Speed Skating Club have included Jack Shea; Charles Jewtraw; James "Bunny" Sheffield; Trevor Marsicano; and Mike Richter.
After being named the Lake Placid Skating Association, then the Lake Placid Speed Skating Club for most of its incorporation, the name was changed to Adirondack Speed Skating Club (exact date this took place unknown). It was renamed Lake Placid Speed Skating Club by the Club Board in 2009, since the oval is located in Lake Placid and to return the club to its original name. Today the club hosts several meets every season at the Olympic Speed Skating Oval.
