John G. Alden designed cutter Freedom was built at the Herreshoff Mfg. Co. Bristol, RI, in the year 1937 for the (1934) Commodore of the Rochester Yacht Club (N.Y.) William P. Barrows. Barrows won the 1930 Canada’s Cup skippering the 8 metre yacht THISBE, defeating the Fife designed QUEST of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. Commodore Barrows, it has often been said, had done more to develop yachting on Lake Ontario than any other yachtsman, winning most of the important cups of the Great Lakes.
