Theodore "Ted" Kiendl, Jr. (May 5, 1890 – July 26, 1976) was an American college basketball player at Columbia University in the early 1900s who was a three-time All-American, one-time National Player of the Year and part of a retroactively-named national championship team in 1909–10.[1][2] In Kiendl's four seasons the Lions compiled 42 wins and 16 losses.[2] He was a team captain in his final three seasons and was also a three-time All-Eastern Interscholastic League selection (1908–09, 1911).[2] Kiendl played the forward position and weighed 215 pounds (98 kg) by the time he was a senior in 1910–11.[3] He also played on the school's baseball team and served as a captain for three years.

Kiendl was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity. After completing his undergraduate schooling in 1911 he stayed at Columbia and earned his Bachelor of Laws degree from Columbia Law School in 1913.[4] In his later life he served as a corporate lawyer in New York state.[5] He argued the landmark case Erie Railroad Co. v. Tompkins before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1938.[6]
