|Title||Al Ulbrickson, University of Washington crew coach, Seattle, 1937 |
|Caption||Al Ulbrickson, who began coaching University of Washington (UW) crew at the age of twenty-four, served as coach for thirty years. Under Ulbrickson's leadership, UW crew went to the Olympics three times. On the first occasion in the 1936 Berlin Games, UW won the gold in a stunning victory after coming from behind. Gold and bronze medals were won in the 1948 and 1952 Olympics as well. After a 1958 defeat from the Soviet Union in the English Henley Regatta, UW registered a surprising victory over the Soviets on their home course in a rematch that was broadcast from behind the 'Iron Curtain' on Seattle's KOMO Radio.|
This photo of Ulbrickson holding the megaphone and standing by the docks was taken in the earlier days of his career in 1937 after he presided over UW crew in their first Olympic gold victory in 1936.
