MC:P2/16/1AR Rowing Medals
Rowing medal awarded to A. P. Parker (as he then was) by Magdalen College Boat Club for his performance in College Sculls.
Three medals awarded to A. P. Parker by Oxford University Boat Club, two for being a member of the University’s Trial Boat, and one awarded as a Challenge Prize Medal, Four Oars. Mark Blandford-Baker, Upon the Elysian Stream (Oxford 2008), pp. 82–3 and 297, shows that Parker was part of a Magdalen crew which won the OUBC Fours in 1889, and that he was in the OUBC trial boat for 1888 and 1889, becoming a Blue in the previous year. These medals must therefore date from this period.
