By JIM BROWN
After spend ing 32 years teaching
swimming toi some of the world's
most famous ,swimmers, as well as
a host of initernationally known
generals and statesmen, Henry
Grieser, has re tired in Ann Arbor.
Former diregtor of swimming in
the Panama Canal Zone, Grieser
arrived in the Canal Zone in 1917,
and soon becam ie famous as the
first man ever to paddle through
the canal in a canoe. He was
charged 7 cents for his weight dis-
placement going through the locks.
* '' *
HE WAS present at the official
opening of the CanaI on July 12,
1920, and became a personal friend
of President Warren G. Harding
when he toured the Zone later
that year.
Since that time he has met
dozens of other famous digni-
taries who have gone through
the canal.
Some of these include Franklin
D. Roosevelt, Alexander Graham
Bell, Will Rogers, John Ringling,
Albert Einstein, General George
Marshall and General Dwight D.
Eisenhower.
AMONG HIS most famous swim-
ming pupils have b een Admiral
William Byrd and Warren Persh-
ing, son of General George Persh-
ing.
Altogether, Grieser taught over
10,000 children how ti swim dur-
ing his 32-duty as swimming
coach in the Canal Zone.
He probably is the only man in
the world who has given swim-
ming lessons in two oceans on
the same day, being, flown from
one. end of the canal to the other
in an old army training plane for
a short period after the first World
War.

LATER, he made several trips
to the United States with his
world famous "Red, White and
Blue Troupe," which included some
of the fastest young swimmers in
the world.
Several of his swimmers, in-
cluding Alan Ford, former Yale
swimming star, became world's
record holders and Olympic win-
ners.
Recalling the harrowing days
just after the Japaiese attack on
Pearl Harbor in 1941, Grieser said,
"We in the Canal Zone experienc-
ed for two days the terrible ten-
sion which the British people must
have been under all through the
Battle of Britain."
* * *
HE SAID that the Zone was
alerted for 48 hours after the
Pearl Harbor attack while Army
planes tracked down an uniden-
tified plane reported in the area.
"We filled our bathtubs with
water, manned air raid lookout
stations and stood by anxiously
until the crisis was over," Gries-
er said.
Praising the Canal Zone govern-
ment for its high personnel stand-
ards, Grieser termed it "one of the
greatest governing organizations
in the world today."
* * *
HE HAD an especially high re-
gard for health authorities who
vacinated more than 460,000 peo-
ple within one week last February
when several natives died of yellow
fever in the interior jungles.
When Grieser retired last May,
the governor of the Canal Zone
proclaimed a special day in his
honor and awarded him the Pan-
ama Gold Medal of Merit for 25
years of cooperation with the Re-
public of Panama and the Ameri-
can government.
