Biography

John Nunn graduated from Cornell, following in his father’s footsteps, who had played lacrosse and football at Cornell, before playing professional football with the Boston Shamrocks of the American Football League. John Nunn rowed on a winning junior varsity eight at the Eastern Sprints while at Cornell, and helped Cornell win the IRA title in 1962 and 1963, but it was after college that he really blossomed as a rower. In 1967 Nunn won the national association single sculls and took a silver medal in that event at the Pan American Games. The following year he teamed with [Bill Maher] to win the Olympic bronze at Mexico City. In 1971 he again rowed in the doubles, this time with [Tom McKibbon] at the Pan-Am Games, and they won a bronze medal together. After college, Nunn earned an MBA at Michigan and later set up his own business, which sold fabricated metals and packaged products to the aerospace industry. He also served as the sculling coach for the USA rowers at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Nunn is a member of the Cornell University Athletic Hall of Fame.
