Joe Grossman Brings Alive Marathon Swimming's Past

In order to preserve marathon swimming history, Dale Petranech has kept alive his dream of publishing the personal files of World Professional Marathon Swimming Association administrator, Joe Grossman.

"Joe passed away in 1974, but Dale faithfully maintained a huge stack of type-written pages from Joe for several decades.

The public information officer traveled around the world with a passion and a unique perspective of the individuals involved in the sport of channel swimming and professional marathon swimming and single-handedly and comprehensively compiled hundreds of pages of notes, observations, recollections and data from solo swims and competitions in numerous bodies of water around the globe," says Steven Munatones.
