Heinz Kluetmeier is the first photo-journalist to be inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF). In spite of their contributions, photographers have received little credit from Halls of Fame even though these halls are filled with images taken by photographers past and present – many times without attribution.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit educational organization located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Our mission is to promote the benefits and importance of swimming as a key to fitness, good health, quality of life, and the water safety of children. We will accomplish this through operation of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, a dynamic shrine dedicated to the history, memory, and recognition of the famous swimmers, divers, water polo players, synchronized swimmers, open water swimmers and persons involved in life saving activities and education, throughout the world, whose lives and accomplishments will serve to inspire, educate, and be role models for all those who participate in the Hall of Fame’s experience and programs.
