BIO NOTES: Robert Wormser: Born in San Francisco, California, USA on 14 Sep 1900 to Samuel Isaac Wormser and Blanche Wertheimer. He passed away on 1971 in Pasadena, California, USA. Nominated to the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame by Bob Wakefield Nominee's History; School: Santa Barbara High School Sports Coached: Tennis Years Coached: 1938-1955; Outstanding Achievements or Honors. Research indicates that Robert Wormser was the only child of one of the co-founders of S&W Fine Foods in San Francisco and conceivably did not have to work a day in his life. However, after graduating from Lowell HS in SF, he completed a BA at Harvard in 1922, enrolled as a student teacher at Santa Barbara State Teachers College in 1924, became a faculty member there in 1926 and served four years as a junior supervisor in the campus training school. He then completed work for an MA in Education at Stanford in 1932. After six months in Europe, he came to SB and taught English and dramatics at SB Junior High School before transferring to SBHS in 1938.) In his first year at the Home of the Dons, Wormser assisted the boys' tennis program as Tom Kruger won a CIF Southern Section Singles Championship. Beginning in 1939, Wormser was head coach and achieved CIF SS Team Championships in 1939, 1941 and 1942. He was briefly out of coaching during World War II. He was already 41 years old when the war began, but he served briefly as Assistant Field Director for the American Red Cross. Then, as he reported to the Harvard University Alumni Office, "...when my request for overseas service was denied, I decided to return to my work at the high school. I find this work as enjoyable and satisfying as on the day I began to teach." In 1947, the SBHS boys' tennis program produced a CIF SS Doubles Championship by juniors Stan Green and Jim Herd, who defeated a South Pasadena 11th grade duo in the finals. The same four players met again in the finals in 1948, with South Pasadena prevailing. Wormser retired from teaching and coaching in 1955, citing health reasons, and moved to Pasadena, where for the next several years, he gave "free tennis lessons to the youth of Pasadena." For the next decade or more, he was in medical facilities. He died in 1971.
