Notes:
According to Robert Pruter's book "The Rise of American High School Sports and the Search for Control, 1880-1930," the Boston Athletic Association began sponsoring a secondary school rowing league in 1898, with nine Boston-area schools participating. It is likely that this photograph shows some of these league participants, including at least one from the Volkmann School.
