Starting in 1950 when he first became a lifeguard in Long Beach, California as a 16-year-old and later being appointed as the city’s Chief Lifeguard in 1974 and the Long Beach Marine Bureau manager retiring in 1995, Dick Miller has been around the ocean all his life.
The photo above, along with many other memorabilia, photos and equipment, are archived at the Long Beach Lifeguard Museum located at 5291 East Paoli Way, Long Beach. It is open to the public every Thursday evening during summer months from 5:00 – 9:00 pm.
