1966 George Pocock Interview
Rowing Archives/Lenny O'Donnell  · January 14, 2020
Wonderful 1966 TV interview with George Pocock (1891-1976), The Godfather of American rowing. Pocock was the premier builder of wood racing shells and oars in the world from the early 1920's to the early 1960's. A champion oarsman in his native England, his rowing expertise was nonpariel. He was the mentor to the entire first generation of coaches and rowers at the University of Washington, who branched out to nearly every major rowing university in the country as coaches and spread his acumen widely.
