Swimming Doll (Aug, 1957)

Marsh A. Marshall? What a name.

Swimming Doll

A little wooden doll is teaching Ft. Lauderdale swimming pupils how to do everything but sink.

SWIMMING dolls are helping Marsh A. Marshall of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., to teach up to 60 weekly pupils the A-B-C’s of natation. A retired dentist, Marshall carved the figures himself to use as demonstrations of the various swimming strokes and techniques. The doll in the pictures is named Leander after the youth who swam the Hellespont: a female doll is called Florence Chadwick. •
