Biography

John J.F. MULCAHY

John Mulcahy was the first U.S. Olympic rower to win a national title, having taken the double sculls in 1891 with M. F. Monahan. Rowing for the Atalanta BC in New York, where he served as club president, he added another in 1904, partnered by Bill Varley in the Olympic doubles, which also served as the NAAO (National Association of Amateur Oarsmen) Championships that year. He graduated from Fordham in 1894, and later was a football coach at Seton Hall University, beginning in 1905. In 1910 he left Seton Hall and returned to Fordham where he was the school’s first rowing coach. He later worked for many years as manager of the Midvale Steel Company of Coatesville, Pennsylvania. Mulcahy was inducted in the National Rowing Hall of Fame in 1956 and the Fordham Athletic Hall of Fame in 1991.
