“The Boys in the Boat” tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 crew, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans in the depths of the Depression. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic Games in Berlin.
Central to any story of early 20th Century crew racing is the Intercollegiate Rowing Association Regatta in Poughkeepsie, which for decades was the country’s premier crew, bringing as many as 125,000 spectators to the banks for the Hudson and making the regatta a major national sporting event on par with the Kentucky Derby, Rose Bowl, and World Series.
Marist’s Historic Cornell Boathouse is a fitting location for Brown’s reading, as it is the only remaining of the IRA Regatta competitors’ boathouses that once lined by sides of the Hudson north of the Poughkeepsie rail bridge.
