Charles Fletcher set a U.S. and unofficial world record in the 200m and 220yd breaststroke at Coronado in 1923 with a time of 3:03 1/5. He later bettered that by 2.8 seconds, but absent an official timer, the mark was not recognized. A San Diego High graduate, Fletcher captained the national champion Stanford water polo team in 1924 and was selected to the All-American swim team in 1922, '23 and '24. Studies at Oxford University precluded his competing in the 1924 Olympics. Part of a pioneer San Diego family, Fletcher founded Home Federal Savings and Loan in 1934 and was elected to Congress in 1946. Fletcher was inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame in 1990 for both swimming and water polo.
