About the Author
Betsy Jordan lives with her dog Bella in a 100-year-old house in Coronado, CA.
With degrees from Wellesley (B.A. Art History), Harvard (M.A. Art History), and University of California, San Diego (Ph.D. English Literature), she was a full-time Humanities professor at UCSD for 15 years.
Betsy Jordan is a record-breaking, award-winning, master-level swimmer, and she exemplifies the values of Masters Swimming: fairness, fun, and fellowship. In her 40+ years of masters swimming competition, Betsy has set over 40 world records and many national and local records, including All-Star and All-American awards. In 2005 she was inducted into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame. You will still find Betsy at the morning swim workouts at UCSD and at the La Jolla Cove on many Saturday mornings.
Pete and Betsy have eleven grandchildren, all of them athletically inclined, some following Betsy into masters swimming competitions. And just so you know, Betsy met Pete at the swimming pool, and one of their favorite swims was when they swam the Maui Channel (10 miles) together in 2004.
Betsy is also the author of Dante and Me: A Journey
