Dr. Edward Vaughan Bevan (November 31907 - February 221988) was a British rower and a doctor. During the 1920s, he attended Trinity College, Cambridge, where he rowed with the First Trinity Boat Club. First Trinity represented Great Britain at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam, where, at the age of 20, Bevan won an Olympic gold medal rowing in a coxless four with John Lander, Michael Warriner and Richard Beesly. They recorded a time of 6:36.0 in the final to beat the U.S. crew by 1 second.
In his later years, Bevan was a doctor in Cambridge, although he maintained his link with rowing - on the wall of his consulting room was a blue oar. He was also senior treasurer of the Cambridge University Boat Club for many years, and was actively involved in coaching the crew, as well as being President of Rob Roy Boat Club from 1946 until 1980.
Bevan was the doctor to the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein whilst he was in Cambridge. After diagnosing Ludwig with prostate cancer, he moved in with Bevan in Storey's Way, Cambridge February 1951, where he stayed until his death on April 29 1951.
