View Full Version : Searching for Historian???

April 28th, 2011, 09:49 AM
I recently had a conversation with Dick Shoulberg, Germantown Academy Coach, and he mentioned there might be some one writing for US Masters on the history of Swimming in New Jersey. If you happen to know who he might be referring too, could you please help me out?

I am doing my own history on Swimming in Section 2 of New York State and am trying to track down records from the Eastern's High School meets held at Lawrenceville, NJ. Specifically looking for results from 1959-1984.

Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!

There is a book titled "The History of New Jersey Interscholastic Swimming" by Bruce Johnson, published for the author by Gateway Press, Inc. 1001 N Calvert St, Baltimore, MD 21202. The book has numerous results of meets held in NJ from the 1920's through the 1980's. In one section the Eastern Interscholastics at Lawrenceville is covered between 1946 and 1985. The book was published in 1986. Incidentally, I swam in that meet in 1959.
