In 1936, the University of Washington men’s rowing team did the unthinkable: despite injuries and illness, they defeated British, German, and Italian crews and brought home a gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. In celebration of the film The Boys in the Boat, directed by George Clooney, MOHAI is proud to display a selection of rare artifacts and photographs related to the 1936 champion crew which offer a look into the rich history of rowing in Seattle.

On view at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) November 24, 2023-June 2, 2024, Pulling Together explores how the sport of rowing has united the city around the shared values of teamwork and inclusion and connected us to the world beyond.
