In 1941, Edwin Lyman Bill of Rutgers placed in competition a cup bearing his name. After two races, both won by Rutgers, war interrupted the series, which was reactivated in 1964 at the urging of Rutgers crew coach Bill Leavitt. The race has always been rowed at 2000 meters. Boston University has been an entrant in each of the 26 races and American International College participated in 1942. Dartmouth did not compete in 1987.
