Two books have so far been approved for reproduction on the site, one from 1866 and the other
from 1929. The first, Training In Theory and Practise by Maclaren, speaks for science, artichokes
and open windows in pursuit of fitness. The other, 1929's Official Centenary History of the Boat Race
from Gurdon, Drinkwater and Sanders, is an immaculate history of the first one hundred years up to
Race number eighty-six, with a report on each. Transcribed Race Reports from that book are shown
here in the Race Reports page. Twenty might come from
Gordon Ross's book "The Story of the First Hundred Races between Oxford and Cambridge"
(Hodder & Stoughton 1954) which we hope to reproduce here later, bringing the record up to 1954.
Our thanks to Aberdeen Asset Management, sponsors of The Boat Race.
