Armar Lowry-Corry, 5th Earl Belmore (5 May 1870 – 12 February 1948) was an Irish nobleman and the eldest son of Somerset Lowry-Corry, 4th Earl Belmore. Was at Trinity Hall, Cambridge from 1888, where he graduated in 1891.

Volumes acquired from the James Crowden Collection. James Gee Pascoe Crowden CVO (14 November 1927 – 24 September 2016) was an English former oarsman who competed for Great Britain in the 1952 Summer Olympics. He was Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire. Crowden was born in Tilney All Saints, near Wisbech in 1927. He grew up in Peterborough and attended King's School before going on to Bedford School. He had his first victory at Henley Royal Regatta in 1946 as part of the school crew which won the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup, which that year was presented by the future Queen herself. He then went to Pembroke College, Cambridge.[2] In 1951 he was part of the winning Cambridge boat in the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in the year when Oxford sank, and the umpire stopped the race and ordered a rerow the following Monday. He went to the United States to compete against American college crews at Yale and Harvard and won Silver Goblets at Henley partnering Brian Lloyd.[3] Also in 1951, he won gold at the European Championships at Mâcon, in France. He was in the Boat Race again in 1952 (as President), when Cambridge lost and he competed in the coxless fours at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki. Crowden became the Cambridge crew's coach for the next 20 years. Crowden followed in the family profession, and became a chartered surveyor with a firm of auctioneers. He was High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely in 1970 and was Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire from 3 July 1992 to 2002. Crowden was a vice-president of the British Olympic Association and a Steward of Henley Regatta. He was involved with the Cambridgeshire Olympic Committee, and with Peterborough Rowing Club. The last two rowing images shown are of Crowden Cambridge winning 1951 Blue Boat. James Crowden is in the three seat and Crowden shaking hands with His Majesty King George VI at a ceremony at King’s College after the Cambridge crew came home from their successful trip to the United States. Note these images are not included but can be found on the internet.
