Organizational History:

The principal contact of the University and the athletics conferences and associations is the faculty representative. The faculty representative from Washington State University originally worked with the Athletic Association of Western Universities (AAWU). The conference changed its name to the Pacific Athletic Conference (PAC-8) in 1968, and then to the PAC-10 in 1978. The representative was responsible for representing WSU in conference meetings and official functions, as well as rules interpretation and compliance. He was the channel for athletes to petition conference and/or NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) rules. He also headed many search committees, and was a member of the University Athletic Council, which advised on internal athletic issues.

Wallis Beasley served as representative through 1966, and Edward Bennett, a professor in the history department, took over thereafter.

Scope and Contents note

The records cover roughly the years 1960-1982, with some material both before and after these dates. All the sections are not complete--there are many gaps. Included are correspondence, eligibility petitions, letters of intent, meeting minutes, financial information, and booklets.

Arrangement note

The records are arranged as three series: WSU, AAWU/PAC-8/PAC-10, and NCAA. The files have been arranged chronologically logically in separate sections within each. Material that was attached together (i.e. stapled or paper clipped) has been left together, even if the dates are not in chronological order.

Maintaining the arrangement of the papers as received was not possible as portions were unfiled or of disrupted filing. Thus, some sections are the same as when they arrived, others are not. The records are arranged in three series: WSU, AAWU/PAC-8/ PAC-10, and NCAA, which reflects of the original order of the more-ordered part of the papers. Unfiled materials were assigned to their apparent place in these series. It was difficult at times to distinguish between these three areas consistently, but generally the material in the WSU area includes all correspondence pertaining to WSU specifically, whether in internal WSU, conference, or NCAA correspondence. The conference and NCAA areas are arranged in the same manner. As a general rule, anyone searching the records should examine all three series.

Wide examination is especially important in the case of the WSU women's athletics correspondence. This is a separate subseries in part, but the separation between this and the general WSU correspondence seemed arbitrary at times. As a result, information pertaining to women's athletics, particularly the so-called Title IX requirements, can be found in the general WSU correspondence section, as well as among meeting minutes. The subseries specific to WSU women's athletics includes correspondence from the AIAW (Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women) and the NCAA.

Many items among the records are stapled or otherwise attached to documents in ways that do not follow the filing logic and would seem to belong in other sections. For example, eligibility petitions are found in the Conference Council meeting minutes as well in their own section. Conference Council meeting minutes also frequently include Executive Director's reports, and other committee reports such as the Appraisal, Drug Enforcement, Basketball Coaches, Rose Bowl Management, and Coaches Committees. Meeting agendas are also found with the correspondence files.

Conditions Governing Access note

The Collection is open for research use.

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

The PAC-10 and NCAA records of Intercollegiate Athletics were received at the Washington State University Libraries as two accessions. In 1982, faculty representative Edward Bennett transferred files that were in his possession, (MS82-22) and in 1988, the office of Director of Intercollegiate Athletics transferred its files (UA88-42). As the two accessions appeared to be parts of the same original record series, the two were combined.

Processing Information note

The processing and arrangement were completed by Steve Rasmussen in March, 1994.
