Roger Morris, Member of '36 Crew, Passes Away
H. Roger Morris, the last surviving member of Washington's legendary 1936 men's crew, has passed away at the age of 94, the Seattle Times reported today.

Morris, who was born and raised in Seattle, is survived by daughters Joan Mullen and Susan Hanshaw, son, James Morris, seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
