Some swimmer!

Here’s a photograph from the June 1 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a Canadian swimming competitor.

I couldn’t find a biography of Margaret Hutton anywhere, but I did find a few things:

  • At the 1934 Commonwealth Games, Ms. Hutton won gold medals as part of the 4×110 freestyle and 3×110 medley relay teams.
  • In 1936, she was quoted as saying that bathing trunks are here to stay.
  • A photograph of her from 1949 is in the City of Edmonton archives. The caption states that she is a champion swimmer from California; perhaps she had moved there by the time of the photo.
  • She was elected to the Ontario Aquatic Hall of Fame in 1999.
