Boulder City History

Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum

Water Sports

Water sports are not usually associated with desert dwellers. The youngsters of Boulder City were provided swimming instructions through the American Red Cross volunteers. Lake Mead was the swimming pool.

Six of the ten authorized Red Cross instructors are shown in the photo taken May 20, 1947. All are Boulder City residents. (Left to Right Elizabeth North, Barbara McCornack, Jim Bellor, Robert Carey, Laura Godbey, and Mary Ann Baroch.)

A view of the free Red Cross swimming instructions at the Boulder City Pool (Lake Mead) was taken July 7, 1947.
