Biography

Larry Hough graduated from Stanford in 1966 and then teamed with Tony Johnson to have an outstanding year in 1967. Rowing a pair together, they won the U.S., North American, Pan American, and European championships in that year. They repeated their national success in 1968 in both the pairs with and without, but lost a bow-baller at the 1968 Olympics to an East German pair.
