Members of Cambridge (Mass.) Boat Club have recently underwritten production
of a beautiful bronze trophy, sculpted by CBC member and rower Ellen
Kennelly. This trophy is the Ted Anderson Memorial Trophy, to be awarded
annually to the winner of the Men's class H single sculls at the USRA
Masters National Regatta.

Ted Anderson (1931-2001) was a much beloved member of Cambridge Boat Club,
an international competitor, mountaineer, Psychiatrist, educator, musician,
machinist, and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Ted died
tragically immediately following completion of a race in July, 2001.

The first winner of this trophy is Kit Collins of Rivanna Rowing Club. Kit
was a good friend of Ted and was scheduled to row with him in the 2001
Masters' Nationals.

A great tribute, and I think that this is the finest rowing trophy I
have ever seen.

Cheers,
