The competition for the Atalanta Cup began shortly after World War II as a dual race between Brown and Dartmouth. During the fifties, Dartmouth dominated the series, winning every race until 1960, when Brown edged out Dartmouth at Hanover. In 1969, the race was discontinued - but renewed in 1983 when Steve Gladstone became the varsity coach at Brown. Brown won each year from 1983 on, except in 1987 when the two teams did not compete. Dartmouth broke that streak with a victory in 1992.
