The following description was written by John Gregory Wiggins in the June 6, 1929 edition of the Horae Scholasticae:
This year the races at Long Pond were in six-oared shells, as shown above. In the lower half of the coat of arms are the books from the Harvard shield, crossed cricket bats behind, recording a victory over that university in this field of sport. The supports to the shield are a hard and a hound, This is in memory of a 12-mile course which was run that year, a large proportion of the School taking part in the event.
