How did the Toronto Argonauts get their name?

Rowing was a popular competitive sport in the latter half of the 1800s. Toronto, which is situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario, has a large sheltered harbour, so there were many rowing clubs in the city. One of them was the Argonaut Rowing Club, which was formed on June 21st, 1872. It was named after the Argonauts of ancient mythology. The Argonaut Rowing Club still exists today. The Argonaut Rowing Club wanted a way to keep its athletes in shape during the off season. Rugby (as football was then known) was becoming a popular sport as well. In 1873, the Argonaut Rowing Club formed a rugby team on which its athletes could play. The Argonaut Rowing Club operated the Toronto Argonaut football team for over 80 years. In 1957, Argonaut Rowing Club sold the Toronto Argonauts to John Bassett, the publisher of the now defunct Toronto Telegram. During the period in which the rowing club operated the football team, the Toronto Argonauts won the Grey Cup 10 times.
