William Forest “Buck" Dawson was the executive director of the International Swimming Hall of Fame. He made major efforts to include open water swimming as integral part of the International Swimming Hall of Fame through displays and written materials maintained in the museum's library. Buck, known as the nicknameMr. Swimming Hall of Fame”, supported the AAU and United States Swimming Long Distance Swimming Programs. Buck wrote the Hall’s charter and helped grow the Hall from an idea to a shoebox collection and, ultimately, a million dollar operation as the world’s showcase and archives of swimming.
