Stories About USMS Swimmers

The USMS History & Archives Committee maintains this archive of stories about USMS members who have made a significant contribution to USMS and/or have been prominent members of USMS. The goal is to collect stories about every USMS member who has promoted USMS, held a national USMS or LMSC office, been named All-American, been a recipient of a USMS national award, been inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) as an honoree, or been inducted into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame (IMSHOF). A partial list of swimmers whose stories are needed can be found here.

Thanks to Keith Bell, Sally Dillon, Dorothy Donnelly, Barbara Dunbar, Betsy Durrant, Carl House, Meg Smath, June Krauser, Janice Krauser, Jim Krueger, Joan P Smith, Skip Thompson, Phil Whitten, and Meegan Wilson for their suggestions and help. The USMS History and Archives Committee additionally would like to thank the Henning Library at the International Swimming Hall of Fame, Bob Duenkel, Preston Levy, Rita Levy, Marion Washburn, and Bruce Wigo for their help.
