The Olympic Games
16. Sport und Staat. Erster Band / im Auftrage des Reichsportführers unter Mitwirkung von Alfred Baeumler ; herausgegeben von Arno Breitmeyer, P.G. Hoffmann. (Hamburg : Hilsfonds für den Deutschen Sport, 1934)
The modern Olympics began with the games at Athens in 1896. Perhaps the most controversial Olympics were held in Berlin in 1936. The celebratory work on display, published in the build-up to the Nazi-organised Olympics, makes specific the link between sport and the state, which many at the time and since have found distasteful.

In his Introduction to volume 1 of British Sports and Sportsmen (1908) Horace Huntchinson wrote,
I remember that when I first began to look into the history of our British sports and pastimes, I was not so much surprised at the little interest which they seemed to excite … as by the fact that the pastime which aroused the greatest interest of all at that time was rowing. I do not mean that locally it was of equal interest with hunting; but there was no other sport, not even that of pugilism (which had then fallen from its highest estimation) that interested people in London so much as rowing. (p. v)
Henley Regatta began in 1839 and the Oxford-Cambridge boat race, had first been rowed in 1829, but there had then been a ten year gap before the official Oxford University Rowing Club was formed in 1839 and the first of the continuous series of races between the Universities took place.
The first Hobart regatta was in 1827, and the Sydney regatta was first held on 26th January 1837, to commemorate the founding of Australia.
24. Cuthbertson, James Lister, 1851-1910.
Barwon ballads and school verses / by James Lister Cuthbertson "C". Memorial ed. (Melbourne : Melville & Mullen, 1912)
The “Head of the River” races between the major public schools are held in each state. In Melbourne they race on the Barwon River at Geelong as well as on the Yarra. James Lister Cuthbertson’s Barwon Ballads is most notable for his poems on the races.
Until the 1950s and early 1960s the Head of the River races were given extensive coverage in the sports pages of the Melbourne daily newspapers and there was betting on the races.

This is an invaluable source of information on the early history of the sport in Victoria, giving for example the background details and the results of such major events as the Melbourne Regatta, first held as the “Upper Yarra Regatta” on 25th April 1857, and the Australian Henley Regatta, first held on 19th March 1904 on the Yarra River from the Botanic Gardens Bridge to the Princes Bridge.
