These recent chapters have been wonderful visits to the past for me. I rowed at Brooks with Gene Clapp and as he mentions, pulled the same style of stroke rowing heavyweight and lightweight at Harvard in the early seventies. Rowing for Washburn and Parker, Gladstone and Higginson, coxed by Weinberg and others, enjoying the company of the Rude and Smooth guys so well described by the hilarious Peter Lowe ("How rude is THAT!?") was sheer delight and raucous good fun.
