Biography

Jerry retired as the Executive Sports Editor of the Boston Globe. He loved all sports, especially those involving endurance and did much to support marathon swimming in New England. He promoted the efforts of Jim Doty, Ralph Willard and the New England Marathon Association. His writing told the story of the technical aspects of the marathon swimming and the inner drive needed by the swimmer to complete the course. His reports on the annual swim from the Boston Light House to the L Street Bathhouse and other marathon swims gave the impression of being on the swimmer’ escort craft and observing the swim stroke-by-stroke.
