Lesley Stahl profiles Harvard swimmer Schuyler Bailar, who may be the first This fall, at Harvard's meet against Ivy League rival Columbia, we watched as right now, at all, is to try to beat at least one person in every race.

On the men's team he'd be at the back of the pack. Schuyler had to do a lot of thinking about what mattered most.

Was it breaking records, or was it really being happy? You put that to him. That was last spring. My goal to myself, because it's not realistic for me to win anything right now, at all, is to try to beat at least one person in every race.
And have you met that goal so far? Yesterday, I did get last in my second event. But-- but that's the only one. And I've done eight races. So, seven out of eight of them I've gotten not last. That's-- I-- I'm really surprised.
I'm really happy about it. And he's happy about living as a man in all facets of his life. He takes the NCAA-approved dosage of testosterone which has been lowering his voice, broadening his shoulders, and bringing him closer to that future he had envisioned back in middle school. You have a little mustache? Yes, I have a little mustache, little peach fuzz.
And I shaved because I wanted to look nice for the interview.
Schuyler has been remarkably open about all this, chronicling the whole process of his transition on social media, complete with before and after images. And he's invited people to ask when they have questions. You are almost passionate about answering questions. You don't run away from this.
Because it's not taught in school. Like if you don't know a lot of trans-people how are you supposed to know the answers to the questions about people who are transgender? What kind of questions do you get? Do you still have a vagina?
Like, people like to ask that one. And a lot of people get really uncomfortable, like a lot of trans-people hate that question. You don't hate that question? I don't like it, but I try to see it from their perspective. And I'm like, OK, if they-- if, like-- if I were in their po-- like, their position, I'd probably be wondering the same thing. Well, what's the answer to the question? I mean, that's the answer to the question.
That's the answer-- Schuyler Bailar: It's, like-- Lesley Stahl: It's a simple question. He says being transgender has nothing to do with whether or not someone gets "bottom surgery," and it also has nothing to do with sexual orientation.
Schuyler has always been attracted to girls; in high school, as a young woman, Schuyler had come out as gay; now, as a man, he's straight. But there is one small matter we discovered, where he's leaving his options open. You will never get pregnant. I don't know about that.
That's a long story. I-- I-- there are, there are trans-men that get pregnant because they want to have biological children. So this is in your head, that one day you might give birth? Might is-- is in bold-- and underlined and italic-ed.
Back at that Harvard-Columbia meet we went to, Schuyler achieved his goal of beating one swimmer and he beat his own previous best time by more than a second. But we did notice Schuyler during the women's competition, cheering on his would-have-been teammates in his old event. And we were pretty sure he noticed that his old times would have won first place. Have you ever in the whole time second-guessed what you did?
I think I'd be lying if I said no. I know I made the right decision. Because I want to win that race. And, you know, I work the same amount. But now I'm working the same amount for 16th place, you know? It's the way it is. And it's also a lot of fun. It has other kinds of glory in it. Three Centuries of Harvard These rules were somewhat like those of English Rugby; but in the meantime Yale, Columbia, and other colleges were developing a rudimentary soccer.
It was a toss-up which would become the American game untilwhen the H. The first match of three games periods was played on Jarvis Field on May 14, Originally there were to be fifteen men on a side, but the number was reduced to eleven because four of the McGill men were unable to leave Montreal. Tufts College took it up and trounced Harvard the following June; in the fall of Yale was converted, and defeated.
It had been better to have been more moderate, for Yale made a determined and successful effort to learn more than her teacher. Walter Camp began to play in ; and Harvard did not beat Yale again until The following description from the Harvard Herald of the first half of the Harvard-Yale football game of is typical: The eleven played its last game of the season on Holmes field Saturday, and received its first defeat.
Although a cold wind blew down the field promising much inconvenience to spectators, about 2, people were grouped around the lines at 2: Yale won the toss and chose the wind, Harvard kicking off.
Yale now commenced the contemptible game she resorted to last fall, and in a few minutes nearly every man in her rush line was warned and threatened with disqualification either for foul tackling or for jumping on and fouling the backs. It was an exhibition which will be long remembered at Harvard and by the outsiders as well, who came expecting to see a scientific game of football.
Yale soon scored a touch down through Beck, from a fumble by one of our rush; but Richards again failed in the goal. Harvard then rallied, and brilliant rushing by Morison and Appleton carried the ball into the middle of the field, when time was called. This constant innovation has been the genius and the bane of the American game, for the almost invisible line between clever tactics and foul play made the temptation to unsportsmanlike conduct almost irresistible, and hard feeling between contestants an inevitable concomitant.

The essential cause of this unsportsmanlike bickering — which Oxford and Cambridge had already outgrown — was the desperate desire for notoriety and victory that still trails its slimy track over American intercollegiate athletics. Harvard at this period was consistently successful on the river and the diamond; the crew won twelve out of seventeen races with Yale in inclusive, and twenty-one out of thirty-five baseball games with Yale, in the same period.
Defeats in baseball occasioned no great grief; but a Yale victory on the river or the football field was a subject for mourning, from the early seventies. Harvard felt a certain loss of manhood in not winning a single football game with Yale in the eighties and only two in the nineties; it was no consolation to have President Eliot prove that the College gained the most students in these valleys of humiliation.
Athletics properly so called, the classic games and contests of the ancient world, began at Harvard as a sideshow to the boat races. At the intercollegiate regatta at Saratoga in there were four running races, and a seven-mile walk. This body, made up entirely of undergraduates, took charge of running, leaping, boxing, wrestling, and gymnastic competitions for almost twenty years. Oarsmen and others competed in the regatta game; but the great event was the formation of the Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America in That summer the Association conducted the last regatta track meet at Saratoga; the next year the winged sandal broke away from the sweep and rudder, and the intercollegiate meets at Mott Haven began.
Princeton won the first, and Columbia the next two; there was not much interest in running at Harvard until Everet J. Then, and for ten years more, an amusing feature of these meets was high-wheel bicycles. There was a bicycle club in College from around to that made long runs into the country on high wheels—even to Peterborough, New Hampshire, on one occasion.
Cricket was played at Harvard into the present century.
