Immortal victory

As we continue to bask in the reflected glory of Yale’s decisive win at the 150th Yale-Harvard Regatta, here’s a reminder carved in stone of a previous Eli win. The Race actually dates back to 1852, but this relief carving in Trumbull College commemorates the first Yale victory, in 1864 (and arguably the first in the series of annual races—the event had been sporadic up to then).
