Biography

Calvert Strong was a member of the Los Angeles Allied AC team that, after beating the powerful Illinois AC in the 1932 Olympic Trials, went on to represent the USA at the Los Angeles Games. He studied at Stanford and entered the securities business, initially working on the floor of the Los Angeles Stock Exchange. In 1928 and 1936 he was selected for the U.S. team, but was unable to attend for various reasons. In 1928 he was still at Stanford and elected to continue lifeguarding during the summer, while in 1936 he had just started a job at Dean Witter and elected to not leave that new job. Strong was inducted into the US Water Polo Hall of Fame in 1985.
