Gus Ryder
Birth: Jan. 11, 1899
Death: May 23, 1991

Canadian Sportsman, Swimming Coach. Ryder was all-arond athlete who excelled in football, baseball, hockey, and handball, but it was swimming where he made is mark. He helped to train and coach famed distance swimmers, Clifford Lumsden and Marilyn Bell, who swam Lake Ontario in 1954 in a record-breaking event at the age of 16. In his later years he helped to establish the Lakeshore Swimming Club in Toronto, Ontario, where he taught thousands of handicapped children to swim and enjoy the water. He was inducted into the Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in 1963. (bio by: K)
