This is the can of film that launched Rowing Archives. It is the original 16mm film that was in a camera in Berlin 1936, with a piece of athletic tape on the exterior of the "EKC" embossed cannister (Eastman Kodak Company). It contains never before seen footage of the "Boys in the Boat" training and practicing in Grunau, some b-roll of the dock activities, and the finish of the semi-final race in which the UW crew defeated the UK and set a new world record.
"The Boys in the Boat" Grunau 1936
This is a still photo grab taken from the newly discovered Ulbrickson "Berlin 1936" reel of film. The reel has over 6 minutes of never-before-seen practice and race footage from Berlin. We need to restore this footage and digitize it so everyone can appreciate just how well these guys rowed.
1950 I.R.A. National Championships
This is footage of the 1950 U.W. varsity practicing before they won the national championship. It was the last Varsity 8+ I.R.A. championship the U.W. would win until 1970, the longest drought since they first participated in the race in 1913. We need to restore and digitize this 16mm film from the Ulbrickson Family Collection.
U.W. Varsity 8+, Moscow, U.S.S.R., 1958
This is one of hundreds of shots we have from the Ulbrickson Family Collection, the Erickson family, and the U.W. that need to be preserved and digitized. We have slides, prints and negatives from the 1920's to the 1970's.
