Armas Nekton 1930
written by James Nekton, December 03, 2008
My Grandfather - Armas Nekton was on the first Jones Beach competition team in 1931. Armas Nekton was a Lieutenant during the 1930 season I believe. I want to see if anyone has more information on Armas and his tenure with JBLC.

Any info would be great.

Thanks in advance,

James

James;
I think I was in touch with another Nekton relative Roger. I have a newspaper clipping I got from Sylvester Granrose's son John showing the early Jones Beach lifeguard Lieutenants James Kearns, Armas Nekton, and Sylvester Granrose along with the original Jones Beach lifeguard Captain William Carl Johns.

Swimsuits for Alumni
written by Claude Corcos, August 05, 2009
Hi,

I was a lifeguard at Montauk Downs in 1987 and 1988, and then at WE2 in 1989. My wife has long since thrown away my official JBLC gear, and I would love to have a vintage swimsuit from that period (dark navy with big gold stripes on the side - you remember them). I'm swimming in the La Jolla Rough Water Swim in September and would really love to wear a JBLC suit. Is there any way I can get one? Men's large.

Marty;
Thanks for the update, what years did the Wood brothers work the beach? I have a couple of Reggie Jones's crew photos from West End Two with Joe Wood, and my Dad Edwin Rooney worked a little at West End One for Pete Messbauer. Were you at Field One during the Stu Miller years?
Drop me a line at and we can add your contact info

I noticed that I'm not on the list! I worked from 1970-76, beginning at Heckscher under Terry Thomas and finishing at RM2 with Ron Mugavin.

I worked at JB from 56 - 60 int he pool , bay, west bath, field one, east bath but primarily at the mall. My number was 121 in that awfuly itchy black and orange sponge we had to wear. I believe I might have been the youngest life guard to work JB since I started about 3 and 1/2 months after my 17th birthday. I remember working for Frank Russell and Pete Mesbauer(sp) sorry Pete. Harry Barr was the capt at the time. I do remember many hours in the old JBH playing ship, captn, and crew, anybody else.
