Encouraging More Adults to Swim
USMS Oral History
The Oral History project is provided and supported by the USMS History & Archives Committee. Oral History offers an opportunity to any one to give honor to a Masters Swimmer who has in some significant way made an impact on the sport, on a local team, or on a particular person. This is not necessarily one of our elite swimmers - in fact, it is geared more to those who have "labored in the fields" and changed some aspect of Masters Swimming for the better. When we have sufficient information on a certain person, it may become a "story" which we report here.
