We have received the sad news of the death on Nov 10, 2011, of long time jumper and honored Brattleboro VT resident, Phil Dunham.
Born July 5, 1923, Phil did his best jumping in the Veterans Class (age 32 and up), winning the Eastern Vets crown 9 times and becoming National Champion in 1961. Phil competed until age 60 and continued to take a few jumps on the small hill in Memorial Park well after that. He was inducted into the Masters Ski Jumpers Hall of Fame in 1990.
Phil was a public spirited citizen, serving several terms as president of the Brattleboro Outing Club. In addition, he involved himself in many other community service activities.
