The University of Washington eight-oared rowing crew made Olympic history in 1936 by winning their gold medal in that event.

The event is well told in a new book, “Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown, a book recommended to me by Martha at Hastings book department. She was right, it’s a story of the development of the sport at UW, along with the story of one of that crew, Joe Rantz, a teenager without a home.
