Biography

Lee Loomis was a 1935 graduate of Harvard who went on to Harvard law school. He then entered the navy and served as a personal assistant to Admiral John Towers throughout the war. Upon returning home he began as an investment banker, but switched to a partnership as an independent gas and oil producer. Loomis was an avid yachtsman. In addition to his Olympic gold medal, he served as the manager for both Courageous and Independence during the 1977 America's Cup Trials. Courageous won the trials and easily won the Cup, so Loomis ended up as the victorious manager.
