September 1, 1925 - LONG DISTANCE SWIM ON SUNDAY FROM LORDSHIP: Special Race to Take Place of Usual Water Sports: The Bridgeport Board of Recreation is planning a long-distance swimming race from Lordship to Pleasure Beach for next Sunday, in which Porter, Ed Button Jr. and Duberg will probably swim. Therefore, the usual events which have been taking place on Sunday afternoons at Lordship Beach, the sixth of which this series was held Sunday, will give way to this special race and will take place the following day Labor Day, when it is expected that the time and tide will favor a large number of events including diving. Sunday's races were all handicap races, Porter winning both men's events owing to the roughness of the water and the unfavorable tide, only three events were run off. Two more trophies have been presented this week and are on display with those already received at the pavilion. Besides the point trophy, which will go to the winner of most points for two consecutive seasons donated by the Lordship Park Association, the Nunnold-trophy, and the diving trophy presented by the management, Lamb and McDonough, the Lordship Improvement Association, this week, presented through its president Louis E. Nunnold, a swimming trophy. A trophy to be known as the Taburzi-trophy, given by AI Tiburzi was also received, to be awarded for swimming points. The local Interest manifested by the gifts of these various trophies has assisted the supervisors of these events in stimulating interest and competition among the many local entrants. Herman Lusebronk, known as Commodore of the Life-guard and Jack Pardoe are in charge of the season's series and have stated their appreciation of the local encouragement of water-sports, which has helped them to accomplish the scheduled programs so successfully.

August 28, 1925: LORDSHIP MEN IN CROSS HARBOR SWIM: All four of the Lordship entrants the cross-harbor swim, held at New Haven Wednesday afternoon, made good showings.

The sixth of the swimming events which are being held at Lordship Beach will be run off on Sunday afternoon. The Lordship Park Association has donated a large trophy cup to be awarded to highest trophy point winner for two consecutive years, thus making next year's winner its permanent holder. Two other cups, one for swimming, known as the Nunnold Trophy given by Louis Nunnold and one diving by the beach management, Luke Lamb and John McDonough, will be awarded at the end of this season, and two others not yet acquired, are expected to be included in the final prizes.

Walter Patterson - Lordship's World Class Swimmer

August 30, 1920 - TWO SWIM TO LORDSHIP FROM FAIRFIELD BEACH: For the third time this, season, Walter Patterson of this city, yesterday afternoon swam from, Fairfield Beach to Lordship Manor. Patterson left Fairfield Beach at 1:20 and reached lordship, eight miles away, at 4:40 p.m., continuing on to Stratford light, which he reached just an hour later. In an interview last night Patterson said it was merely a frolic and becoming a more or less frequent stunt among local life savers. N.M. McPhee, one of the members of the Seaside park life saving corps, also swam the same course successfully yesterday afternoon.

September 1, 1921 - PATTERSON SWIMS LONG ISLAND SOUND: Walter Patterson, local long distance swimmer, succeeded yesterday in his attempt to swim Long Island Sound from Port Jefferson to Lordship beach, a distance which is estimated to be about fifteen miles as the crow flies. Tide changes forced Patterson to swim a considerably longer distance. This feat has never been accomplished before, but swimmers have crossed Long Sound from New Haven to a point on Long Island. Patterson started to swim at 8.42 a.m., yesterday and reached Lordship at 7:3H5. He was in the water just 11 hours 7 1-2 minutes. The boat Tod accompanied him.

October 13, 1922 - WALTER PATTERSON ARRIVES HOME: Walter Patterson, Lordship swimmer who failed in his attempt to swim the English Channel, due to an attack of cramps, returned to Bridgeport Wednesday morning. Patterson was about town, greeting his friends yesterday and stated that he was confident that he can swim the channel under normal conditions. Patterson plans to make another attempt next season, but plans to start earlier in order to be in trim for the fall tides.

August 10, 1923 - PATTERSON ONLY PERSON TO SWIM SOUND REPEATS: Long Distance Swimmer Conquers Waters After Hard Struggle of 11 Hours and 30 Minutes. Starts from Lordship Beach and Touches Ground at Old Field Point Lighthouse in Good Condition: After a long battle of brains and brawn a man beat the waters of Long Island Sound yesterday in one of the hardest swims attempted by a human being. Walter Patterson, of Lordship, long distance swimmer, who is the only person to have swum across the Sound, accomplished that task again yesterday for the second time. Because of certain obstacles, which confronted the swimmer in his difficult task he was unable to better his time of nine hours and 55 minutes established in 1921 when he first swam the Sound. His time for yesterday's feat was 11 hours and 30 minutes. Patterson, who is a blacksmith, attempted to swim across the English Channel last year, but was forced to give up after a grueling battle. Although he failed to better his time yesterday, he displayed grit and stamina in fighting currents and heavy winds that twice carried him off his course. His well developed physique was one of his biggest assets in swimming the long distance. Among those who accompanied Patterson across the Sound in a motor launch were Captain M. A. Baum, Superintendent P. V. Gahan, of the Board of Recreation, Samuel Driver, former manager of Lou Bogash, and a long distance swimmer, and representatives of the Telegram. Contrary to expectations Patterson started his swim across the Sound from Lordship Beach instead of from the Long Island shore. When he first accomplished the task two years ago he started from Oldfield Point, L.I. and had decided to take the same course yesterday but was prevented by several delays. It was planned to leave from Long Island about 7 o'clock in the morning so that he could be favored by winds and tides at that hour. When he did start on his long swim it was from the Lordship side of the Sound at 8:51 o'clock. During the first five hours he made rapid time with an average of 32 strokes to the minute, with the water at about 70 degrees. At noon time he asked for his dinner and was fed by Captain Baum. His meal consisted of hot coffee, crackers, meat and candy. From Lordship to Middleground light a distance of six miles was covered by Patterson in six hours. Changing of the tide at the Middleground light at noon hindered the swimmer much as also did a north eastern wind which blew steadily against him while he was nearing his goal, Long Island shore. Patterson touched ground at a point a short distance from Old Field Point lighthouse just as darkness enveloped the Sound. The time of his arrival there was 8:21 p.m. Patterson appeared none the worse for his experience and when reaching the Long Island shore immediately dressed and joined the party of the journey home.

LORDSHIP MEADOWS

The Lordship Meadows was a field on the old trolley line at about where Surf Avenue meets Lordship Boulevard. Technically it was not in Lordship.

August 1, 1925 - YOUNG EMMETS WILL HOLD ANNUAL OUTING TOMORROW: The second annual outing of the Young Emmet Gaelic Football club will be held at the Lordship Meadows tomorrow afternoon and will be featured by three sparkling athletic events. Two Gaelic and a hurling games will mark the program. The first game will bring together the Sligo team of New York and the Mitchells of New Haven. The Sligo team holds the Junior championship of New York while the Mitchells are the Connecticut titleholders. The second game will be between the Tipperary team, winners of the New York Senior League championship, and the Young Emmet eleven. The Tipperary combine will be led by Captain Billy Bennett, who has won several medals on All-Ireland teams. Cups will be given to each team. The hurling game will bring together teams of Hartford and Waterbury. Spectators from all parts of Connecticut and New York city are expected to witness the games. The Emmet team wound up its practice at Seaside Park Thursday night under the leadership of Captain Curley and expects to prove strong against the Gotham champions. The committee in charge of the affair follows: P. J Curley, chairman; W. J. Vaughn, J. Reynolds, D. McQueeney, J. Lavln, J. Phelan and W. Gushing.

August 6, 1923 - SKIRLIN' BAGPIPES: The Lordship Meadows are about as close as Bridgeport and vicinity come to the "great open spaces" and next Saturday a large number of plaided individuals are going out there to prove which of certain "men are men," and how much. The Clan Campbell, Scottish order of this city, has sent out a call to bag pipers throughout New England, to attend a state bag piping championship contest on that day and it is stated that "a set of officials, all Scotchmen will judge the tunes and their execution on the pipes and it is also announced that "at the same time the state championship at the Highland fling will be decided. It may be well that the officials are "all Scotchmen," for while many Connecticut folk have come to know the bagpipe's skirl and to enjoy it; they cannot be thrilled by it as the Scot alone can and it might be hard for anyone but a Scot to find distinction between the various pipers. This only goes to prove that a good deal of music lies in the ear of the listener. When the non-Scot listens to the pipes, he just hears them as pipes and frankly, as a musical instrument they're not much. But the Scot hears the breeze on Loch Lomond, the wind in the heather, the cries of the clansmen rallying to their chief, the sword dance in the village, the lament of the Jacobite refugee, the clamor of the patriots surging to arms. The chills run up and down the listener's spine and no wonder! This field day of the Clan Campbell is of significance in modern Connecticut. Connecticut is still Yankee, but not all Yankee. The clambake is a New England institution that must share attention among recreation seekers, as it has done during these summer months, with the saengerfests of the Germans of Connecticut, and with the folk games of the Czechs of this state, to say nothing of the pentathlon of the javelin-throwing' Swedes, which is to take place on Fairfield grounds a week or two hence, and the distinctively British soccer, which has come to be almost a major sport in Connecticut. Folks may be surprised at the large number of bag pipers who respond to the call to come to the Meadows, where there is plenty of room for the music to be dispersed.
