Keith William "Duke" Campbell - Born September 21, 1909 in Stratton Ontario - Died July 25, 1981 in Winnipeg, Manitoba was a Canadian ice Hockey defenceman / forward and coach.

Keith Campbell became the first inductee into the British Ice Hockey Hall of Fame after holding a then record of 359 consecutive league and cup appearances in the English National League.

An engineering graduate of Manitoba University, the 5’8”, 162lb-left winger played for the Moncton Hawks of the Maritime Senior Hockey League.

Campbell stayed with the Racers for four seasons, being named to the All-star B Team in 1948 and helping them to win the ENL in 1948–49.

Keith Campbell proved his versatility by being named in the 1939/40 All-Star A-team as a left-winger and to the 1946/47 A-team as a defenceman.
