Bill Cleary whose association with Harvard spanned six decades and includes
experiences as a student-athlete, coach and administrator retired June 30, 2001. His Harvard
career began in his early years as a program seller at Harvard Stadium, continued through his
days as a standout player, included his 19-year head coaching tenure and concluded with his
11-year term as the Nichols Family Director of Athletics.
Cleary ranks among the greatest athletes to play for Harvard lettering in both baseball and
ice hockey and still holds or shares seven University records in hockey. In 1956, Cleary was
a member of the U.S. Olympic hockey team that captured a silver medal. Four years later, he
was the top scorer for the U.S. team that won gold at Squaw Valley, California. Cleary was
also the leading scorer for the 1957 U.S. National Team and captain and MVP for the 1959
U.S. National Team.
Cleary, a Cambridge, Mass., native, graduated from Belmont Hill School in 1952. At
Harvard, he earned a B.A. in Government and served in the United States Army from 1955
until 1957. After several years as a high school and college hockey official, he returned to
Harvard in 1968 as the freshman hockey coach. Under Cleary, Harvard reached college
hockey's final four on seven occasions and advanced to the national championship game
three times. Harvard also won two ECAC Tournament titles, four Bean pot championships,
and 11 Ivy League championships.
On numerous occasions, Cleary has been recognized for both his athletic ability and
commitment to amateur athletics. In 1999, he was named by Sports Illustrated
Massachusetts 33rd best athlete of the 20th century. The Boston Globe
placed him 68th on its list of the top-100 New England athletes of the past century. In 1997,
Cleary received the Lester Patrick Award for contributions to hockey, was named to the
NCAA Ice Hockey 50th Anniversary Team, was chosen a U.S. Hockey Player of the Decade
(1956-66) and was inducted into the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1989, he was
inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame, which was followed by his selection
as one of the 100 Golden Olympians by the U.S. Olympic Committee in 1996.
Cleary's retirement brought forth a landslide of recognition for the Harvard legend. On
March 2, 2001, Cleary's hockey No. 4 jersey was retired in a ceremony at the Bright Center
between periods of the Crimsons meeting with archrival Yale. It is the only jersey number
retired in any sport in the history of Harvard athletics, which includes 41 varsity sports and
over 150 years of intercollegiate athletic tradition. Harvard's three Hobey Baker Award
winners Mark Fusco 83, Scott Fusco 86 and Lane MacDonald 89 were on hand to watch as
Tim Stay 01, who wore Cleary's No. 4, skated from the dressing room, removed his sweater
and surrendered the number to Cleary at center ice. Stay wore No. 3 for the remainder of his
Two weeks later in Lake Placid, N.Y., Cleary was bestowed another honor, as ECAC

Parker is widely regarded as the premier rowing coach in the United States and, since taking
over the program in 1963, has brought tremendous success to the Crimson as his crews have
dominated both the Eastern Sprints and National Championships. He has also guided
Harvard to clear advantages over all its collegiate opponents, and has taken Crimson rowing
onto a world stage to compete.
Highlights of his tenure include 18 undefeated regular seasons, 20 EARC Sprints varsity
titles, 16 JV Sprints crowns, eight official National Championship victories, and eight
unofficial National crowns when the Crimson has gone undefeated against all major
The recent run of unparalleled success is the most recent addition to Parker's already-
impressive resume, as the varsity enters the spring of 2006 having won 24 straight dual
matches covering 32 opponents. Parker's 2005 varsity - thought in the pre-season to be
vulnerable due to the 2004 graduation of six oarsmen and the cox - continued the
remarkable run by capturing a third-straight gold medal at both Eastern Sprints and the IRA
National Championship Regatta.
Prior to the recent string of three straight national titles (2003, 2004, and 2005), Parker's
crews have been officially crowned national champions in 1983, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1989, and
1992, after capturing eight unofficial crowns in the two preceding decades.
Under Parker, Harvard crews have also raced against the world's best and achieved amazing
success. Additionally, Parker-coached Harvard oarsmen have rowed at every Olympic
Games over the past four decades.
Parker began rowing as an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was
part of victorious crews in the EARC Championships and Grand Challenge Cup. After
graduating, he took up single sculling and won the Gold Medal in the 1959 Pan American
Games. He then placed fifth in the single at the 1960 Olympics. From 1964 until 1992,
Parker regularly coached U.S. Olympic crews, leading both men's and women's entries to
strong finishes in the eights, and handling the sculling at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles.

in the 1996 Atlanta Games. During this time, she represented the United States in
international and world championship competition in the double and quadruple sculls.
Tucker is currently the lightweight women's rowing coach at Radcliffe. She and her husband
Stewart have a 3-year old daughter, Amelia; they live in Cambridge.

and writing books and articles.
