Addendum: My brother Bob and I were in the JV boat, pictured here in the foreground. The ECU Varsity boat is ahead of us in this photo. We had broken an oar during practice.
I can help with info about these pictures. My twin brother Robert (Bob) and I are pictured in the 8 (Stroke) and 7 positions in front of the coxswain, Jerry Brown. Although I need to do more research on the other names, David Williams is in the 5 seat. Two of the pictures are incorrectly identified as East Carolina; the uniforms shown are not ECU. My brother and I rowed from Fall 67 to Spring 72. I have many articles and pictures from those years, and even film. Happy to share if you are interested. Bob and I have continued to row and compete for 48 years. (We are age 66 now.) Thank you.
Hi Dick! I hope the years have been good to you and Bob. I have good memories from those years. Jerry (firstname.lastname@example.org)
On the history of ECU program that runs on the institutional access channel and is presented by Henry Farrell that is mention that Crew was added to athletics in 1964 which seems to fit this photo. I noticed from the photo that the fourth sweep (oar) on the left side of the shell on the left side of the photo seems to be either missing or has gone adrift which may also explain why the shell on the right is pulling away!
