Scope and content
This series consists of correspondence received by Nick Thierry from various people associated with swimming, both in Canada and internationally. A large portion of the correspondence is a set of letters collected by Thierry from prominent Canadian swim coach Howard Firby which Thierry kept in three large-ring binders. Much of the correspondence from Firby is in regards to his thoughts on the status of Canadian swimming and the coaching of amateur athletes, but a great deal of the later correspondence deals more with Firby and Thierry’s personal lives.
