Alfred Lewin Copley was a German-American medical scientist and an artist at the New York School in the 1950s. As an artist he worked under the name L. Alcopley, he is best known as an artist for his abstract expressionist paintings, as a scientist for his work in the field of hemorheology. He was married to the Icelandic artist Nína Tryggvadóttir; as a scientist, Copley studied the rheology of blood. In 1948 he introduced the word biorheology to describe rheology in biological systems. In 1952 he introduced the word hemorheology, to describe the study of the way blood and blood vessels function as part of the living organism. In 1966 he established the International Society of Hemorheology, which changed its name and scope in 1969 to the International Society of Biorheology. In 1972 the ISB awarded him its Poiseuille gold medal. In 1949 he was one of twenty artists; the group included Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning and Alcopley's close friend, the composer Edgard Varèse. He participated in the Ninth Street Show in 1952 and had a solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in 1962.

It hosted the 1900-01 FA Cup Final replay in which Tottenham Hotspur beat Sheffield United 3.1.

The record attendance was for a 6th round F A Cup match with Stoke City at which, although the ground capacity was set at 70,000, an estimated 85,000 fans crowded in, when two crush barriers broke, the result was 33 fans killed and another 400 injured. The capacity at closure was a mere 25,000 The council of the Rugby Football League voted to introduce a new competition, to be similar to The Football Association and Scottish Football Association's "League Cup", it was to be a similar knock-out structure to, to be secondary to, the Challenge Cup. As this was being formulated, sports sponsorship was becoming more prevalent and as a result John Player and Sons, a division of Imperial Tobacco Company, became sponsors, the competition never became known as the "League Cup" The competition ran from 1971-72 until 1995-96 and was intended for the professional clubs plus the two amateur BARLA National Cup finalists. In seasons the entries were expanded to take in other amateur and French teams; the competition was dropped due to "fixture congestion" when Rugby League became a summer sport The Rugby League season always ran from around August-time through to around May-time and this competition always took place early in the season, in the Autumn, with the final taking place in late January The competition was variably known, by its sponsorship name, as the Player's No.6 Trophy, the John Player Trophy, the John Player Special Trophy, the Regal Trophy in 1989.
