Brian Garman Inducted into ITA Hall of Fame

The USTA Boys' 18 & 16 National Championships' own Dr. Brian Garman was among nine individuals inducted to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Men's Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame tonight at Texas A&M, College Station, Texas during the NCAA Tennis Championships. Garman was inducted as a contributor for inventing the Garman System, a computer system for scheduling matches, which is widely used throughout the U.S.

Dr. Garman serves as the assistant director of the USTA Boys’ 18s & 16s National Championships and has served as an NCAA assistant referee since 1980.

A graduate of Cornell University, Garman received his master’s, specialist’s and doctoral degrees from Western Michigan University. Garman began his career as a theoretical mathematician, but his interests have evolved to using known principles of mathematics to solve everyday problems. He is also widely known as The Mac Expert.

Joining Garman in the induction ceremony were players Byron Black (USC), Wayne Black (USC), Greg Holmes (Utah), Bruce Manson (USC), Jose Noriega (San Diego), Brad Pearce (UCLA), Peter Rennert (Stanford) and Paul Torricelli, former tennis head coach at Northwestern University.
