 ISHOF Receives Dale Neuburger Collection

Tom Hairabidean passes away
 MISHOF Honor Diver Passes Away at 96

Masters hall of fame diver Tom Hairabidean passed away on Sunday at the age of 96. He was inducted into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame in 2007 with five World Championships gold medals to his name.  His mother survived the Armenian Genocide. His father served as a Captain in the Russian Army just prior to WWII. Both were instrumental in developing his “can do it” attitude. A world-class gymnast, he became entranced with diving while attending USC. Since then, Tom Hairabedian just couldn’t get enough — as a participator, coach and organizer.
