In November, the University Archives was pleased to receive a donation of materials relating to Princeton’s 1948 one-fifty pound crew team. The team traveled to England to compete in the Henley Royal Regatta and came home as victorious winners of the Thames Challenge Cup. The crew team’s coach, Davis Spencer, Class of 1945, collected the materials which include a scrapbook, photographs and memorabilia. The photograph below depicts the 1948 crew team (Gift of Susan Spencer Cramer, AR.2008.149).
