Hart Perry Dies!

It was with profound sadness I learned that Hart Perry, Executive Director of the National Rowing Foundation, Henley Steward, to mention a few of his positions in the Rowing World, passed away at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital, in New London, Connecticut, at 1 o’clock this afternoon. He took ill at the award dinner at Henley on the 20 January, and when he returned home, he was soon thereafter rushed to the hospital.

Hart was a great man, and he will be sadly missed by all his friends around the world!

  1. What a loss to rowing and to friendships. Hart personified all that is fine and great about rowing and his colleagues and friends have mighty boots to fill. Bill Lanouette

  2. A kind and generous and fine man who will live in our memories as long as we draw breath.
