Coach Mike Murphy, after whom our main men's crew endowment fund is named.  The portait by Onelio Marrero was sponsored by Peter Eckhardt, son of UW rower from 1932-33, Paul O. Eckhardt, Jr., who rowed for Murphy.

 

Coach Skip Walz, UW men's head crew coach from 1940-42 and 1945-46. This portrait was painted by Onelio Marrero from an image in the 1941 Badger Yearbook and was co-sponsored by gifts to Friends of UW Men's Crew, Inc. from Carlyle "Bud" Fay (UW '48) and the Carl Holtz Memorial Fund. This portrait, along with four others completed or in process, will hang in the men's erg room of the Porter Boathouse.
