On opening day of our newest exhibit Pulling Together: A Brief History of Rowing in Seattle, join MOHAI for a screening of the American Experience documentary, The Boys of ’36, courtesy of KCTS 9.

Featuring interviews with Brown, historians and surviving children of the 1936 Washington team, The Boys of ’36 recounts their unexpected victory and the obstacles they overcame to achieve it, giving hope to a nation struggling to emerge from the depths of the Great Depression.
