The Boys in the Boat / Tue Nov 18 / Susan and Howard

Boys in the Boat

Local history by Daniel James Brown, in the spirit of Secretariat and Unbroken.

A Spokane boy without a family leads a University of Washington rowing team, beats the Ivy League, and goes to the 1936 Olympics.

Fun fact: Ohio University measured Olympic rowing in 1977.  “A never-never land of pain”.
