Ralph Swimer

Ralph Swimer (b. 1914 – d. 28 February 1998 in London, England) was an international bridge player who was best known for being the nonplaying captain of the British team at the 1965 Bermuda Bowl in Buenos Aires, during which there was a great deal of controversy surrounding the British team due to an allegation of cheating.

An obituary on him was published by Alan Truscott in The New York Times concerning Ralph Swimer and this event.[1]

Swimer possessed the title of World Bridge Federation World Life Master and in 1960 was a member of the British team which finished second to France in the first World Team Olympiad in Turin.
