Although Bill Craig was rather below his best on the breaststroke stage of the medley relay final at the 1964 Olympics, the U.S. still became the first team ever to beat four minutes for the event. Craig, who attended Southern Cal, won three AAU and three NCAA titles. He also won a gold medal at the 1963 Pan-American Games as a member of the medley relay team. Craig later owned a restaurant, Billy’s at the Beach, in Newport Beach, California, which was a Hawaiian-style eatery based on concepts he found in the Hawaiian Islands, his favorite place. Craig also worked in other roles, including finance and teaching.
