Chris Brown’s pictorial history of WCC, entitled Images of America: Washington Canoe Club is the culmination of a three-year project sorting through thousands of images that document the WCC’s 115-year history. The book has accounts of floods and dramatic rescues, pioneering women and men in paddling, social events and high jinx, Olympic greatness and everyday living, all in the context of the remarkable 20th century of Washington history. It chronicles a century of activity along the Potomac River and a social institution of highly competitive, high-spirited men and women.
