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.
Lee Loomis was the son of Alfred Lee Loomis (1887-1975), who was an American polymath who worked at various times as an attorney, investment banker, philanthropist, and scientist. He was responsible for setting up the scientific research laboratory, called Tower House, in Tuxedo Park, New York, where Lee Loomis was born, which was responsible for many scientific advances in the 1930s and 40s, and where significant work was performed that had military implications during World War II.
