Nice to see the two Stanford alums make the U.S. Olympic Team...a lot of credit , in addition to their efforts, their coaches and the Stanford Athletic Dept should go to Cliff and Helen Burnhill, Stanford '29/'32 Law for the generous gifts they made upon their deaths 11 years ago that provided the spark to funding for the Men and Woemen's Crew Program....Thx Cliff and Helen, Chris Burford '60
