Speegle an exemplary coach and teacher at the University (1926 - 1963), will long be remembered for his warmth and good spirit and for the sportsmanship and skill he represented and passed on to generations of students. Wilbraham teacher and friend at the University (1927 - 1957), will be remembered for her vibrant personality and unquenchable honor made life in the cooperative dormitories and on the playing fields an unforgettable part of her students' education. The Speegle-Wilbraham Aquatic Center has been the home pool of over 100 All-American honorees from the University of Rochester men's and women's swimming and diving teams.
