(UAS), a Washington D.C. based organization, was founded on February 25, 1959 by Dr. Albert José Jones after finding existing scuba diving clubs in the area were more than a little reluctant to admit and train potential Black divers. It was clear that a need existed to train Blacks to become divers. Strong swimmers and athletes such as Maurice Jackson, Donald Green, Sylvester Dory, Molester Foxworth, and Donald Thomas did not mind the potential rigors of scuba training. This group was trained and became the core club members.
