Video of the Week: The History of Women’s Rowing

This is a neat hour-long interview with Ernestine Bayer, who is often referred to as the “mother of women’s rowing”, on her involvement with the sport, the founding of Philadelphia Girls Rowing Club in 1938, etc . There’s also some photos here that show her rowing in Philadelphia, her husband’s coxless four training for and racing at the Amsterdam Olympics, and other cool memorabilia.
