Bert Pound (1916-2016)

He played for the “boys in the boat” after they won gold at the 1936 Olympics. He marched in the 1937 Rose Bowl and played for the Husky Marching Band’s alumni band. But Bert Pound, ’37, was best known for always upbeat personality and performing one-armed push-ups every time the Huskies scored a touchdown—even up to the age of 99.

You can honor Bert, who died Nov. 12 at the age of 100, by donating to the Bert Pound Scholarship Fund c/o the Husky Marching Band: Alumni Association, UW Graves Building, Box 354070, Seattle, WA 98195.
