EDITOR’S NOTE:
The Diving Almanac’s Who’s Who is not an award or a hall of fame, yet we acknowledge that many deserving people have inadvertently been overlooked. The criteria for admission are based entirely on the exceptional accomplishments of the personalities and their time-tested and often lifelong devotion to the diving world. The following list includes pioneers, explorers, scientists, inventors, award-winning photographers and writers, authors, commercial and military divers, conservationists, entrepreneurs, administrators and entertainers. Many have lead in their respective fields and countries for decades. If you know someone that should be considered for the Diving Almanac Who’s Who, please fill in the form on the nomination page.
Who’s Who profiles are listed alphabetically
