Bernard "Buzzy" Hellring was a creator of Ultimate Frisbee. Along with Joel Silver and Jared Kass, Hellring created ultimate in the parking lot of Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey. Hellring died in 1971, in an auto accident at Princeton University. He was elected posthumously into the Ultimate Hall of Fame.
After his death, funds were raised to fulfill his dream of producing the high school newspaper he edited as an in-house daily, through purchase of a large Heidelberg printing press. This press was sold sometime in the late 1990s as traditional printing arts were replaced by computer-based technologies in the school's curricula.
