Wow, Mark, it was at a time when Black folks were "invisible".  You were blessed.  Congratulations, and best wishes with your project.  Coach Stafford deserves the honor that you are proposing.

Over the last months, I have posted numerous photos on the site.  They were all a part of the source material for this draft documentary on Coach Jane Stafford.  Those of us who swam for her understand her significance to the diversification of our sport and are working to honor her with a nomination to the ISHOF.
