New England Interscholastic Rowing Association
History and Regatta Records
_____________________________________

A Brief History

Special thanks to Rich Davis of St. Paulís for contributing the major portion of this short history. Apologies to the many valued participants of the Association, past and present, who for reason of brevity were not given their due measure of recognition.

Prior to the first regatta in 1947, several school coaches held organizational meetings at the Harvard Club in Boston, choosing the name "New England Interscholastic Regatta". At the 1949 annual meeting in Boston, the first officers were elected: Director - Ken Burns, Secretary - Dave Lanier, and chairmen for both the fours and eights.

Until 1959, the headquarters for the races was the Shrewsbury Boat Club, south of the route 9 bridge. Over the years, the schools decided to launch their shells from the beach, near the present finish line by walking the boats into the water. New facilities added by 1959 allowed the headquarters to be moved to Regatta Point and by 1960 the facilities were complete and looked much as they do today.

The 1947 regatta had heats, consolations and finals for the First and Second Boysí Fours, and finals for the First and Second Boysí Eights, with about ten schools in the Fours and four schools in the Eights. No records were kept of the entries, but the winners appear on the Father Sill Trophies - Pomfret in First Fours and Kent on First Eights.

The member schools in 1951 (the first time recorded) were:
   Fours - Belmont Hill, Choate, Gunnery, Salisbury, St. Georgeís, Brown & Nichols, Phillips Exeter, Pomfret, South Kent, and St. Markís
   Eights - Kent, Halcyon and Shattuck (clubs from St. Paulís), Shrewsbury, and Tabor.

In 1955, the organization name became New England Interscholastic Rowing Association.

In 1956, at the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Kent School, Mrs. Julier, sister of Father Sill, donated two Revere Bowls in memory of the Kent Headmaster, Father Frederick H. Sill, to be awarded to the winners of the First Eights and First Fours. In the same year, Phillips Academy Andover and Springfield Technical joined the Association, rowing in eights. In 1959, Brooks and Middlesex joined and in 1961, Groton and Noble & Greenough all rowing in fours.

The Association voted that each school should wear distinctive colored crewshirts to help identify the order of finish and that there be an official program with lane assignments and times of the races, which Charlie Swift produced.

In 1962, singles were added, to be run during the lunch hour. Also in 1962, J. Satterthwaite of Groton raised funds for the "Ox" Kingsbury Cup, to be awarded to the winner of the Second Fours. Mr. Kingsbury had coached at Brooks. Ken Burns of Shrewsbury raised money for the Dixon "Tote" Walker Cup, to be awarded to the winner of the Second Eights. Mr. Walker coached at Kent.

In 1964, St. Johnís High School joined the Association; in 1967, Mt. Herman; and in 1968, St. Paulís sent crews representing the school. Since then, membership has continued to grow.

Until 1970, the Eights raced one mile and the Fours, three-quarters of a mile. In 1979 the Fours and Singles switched to 1500 meters, and there were two finish lines. In 1972, all crews rowed 1500 meters. When the girlsí crews joined in 1974, the Eights raced 1500 meters and the Fours 1000 meters.

By 1970, Dave Lanier retired from teaching and the Association lost its competent and faithful Secretary-Treasurer, the only one it had had. In 1972, Ben Sylvester of Choate presented the Alden Johnson Sculls for the winner of the Senior Singles. The Sculls honor a former Choate rower. In 1974, the Association voted to give competitor ribbons and to award a small trophy to members of the winning First Crews and Senior Singles.

In 1977, Robert Warner raised funds to establish the Kenneth F. Burns Trophy, to be awarded annually to the winner of the First Girlsí Eights race. This trophy honors the man who has done the most for the Regatta, and who had been rowing and racing on Lake Quinsigamond throughout his life. Winners since 1974 have been inscribed on the Burns Trophy.

Also in 1977, Noble & Greenough School presented the Robert Warner Trophy for the winner of the Womenís Fours. This trophy honors the retired coach of Nobles and the Secretary-Treasurer of the NEIRA who almost single-handedly carried on the business of the Association for seven years. With Bob Warnerís retirement, a Committee of Management consisting of nine coaches took over his work.

The regatta lasted two days in 1977. Boysí Pairs, Girlsí Open Singles, and Girlsí Double Sculls were added to the event. The one-day format returned in 1978, and the Pairs and Double Sculls were dropped.

In 1979, friends and faculty of St. Paulís School honored the late Converse Prudden by establishing the prize for Second Girlsí Eights. Mr. Prudden was the first coach of girlsí crews at St. Paulís. His crews won seversl NEIRA Championships.

In 1980, the Committee accepted two new prizes. The girls of Groton presented the Robert Parker Award for the Second Girlsí Fours to honor their former coach. The generosity of Arthur Martin of Martin Marine donated the Arthur Martin Trainer, a boat to be used for the year by the winner of the Boysí Singles.

In 1984, fellow coaches and member schools honored Charles M. Swift, long-time varsity coach of Phillips Exeter and referee of the regatta, with establishment of the Charles M. Swift Trophy for overall winning school in the Boysí Fours.

In 1994, Clint Allen donated the A. Clinton Allen Plate for the winner of the Third Girlsí Fours and Brian Ford Plate for the winner of the Fourth Girlsí Fours.

In 1995, friends and alumni of Kent School raised money for the W. Hart Perry Trophy awarded to the school garnering the highest number of points in the Boysí Eights. A long-time coach of Kentís Boys Crew, Hart Perry also served for a number of years as Chairman of the NEIRA Committee of Management. His unwavering dedication to the smooth operation and continued growth of the annual championship helped preserve the best traditions of sportsmanship and athletic excellence at a time when the Association experienced rapid expansion of membership. His many efforts on behalf of the regatta have put the Association in good stead as we look ahead to the next fifty years.

Since the first regatta run for nearly a dozen schools in 1947, the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association has grown to a day-long event of 53 races for well over 1,000 competitors rowing in several hundred boats, representing over 35 schools.
