Biography

American swimmer known as the "Mother of Masters Swimming," she was one of the founders of U.S. Masters Swimming and set 154 national records and 73 world records. She was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 1994.

She was considered "likely to compete" in the 1944 Summer Olympics, but the games were not held due to the ongoing world war. Krauser remained active in swimming throughout her life and was appointed in 1964 to the United States Olympic Women's Swim Committee. She also helped draft the rules and regulations for the Special Olympics in the late 1960s.

Such were her accomplishments that swimming legends Buster Crabbe and Johnny Weissmuller, contemporaries who "looked up to her," were among her friends. Krauser died on 2 August 2014 at the age of 88 in Pompano Beach, Florida, from complications of Parkinson's disease.
