Arrangement note

Spanning the years 1915 through 1976, the records of the Athletic Department comprise six series. Correspondence (1950-1975), the first and largest series, is arranged alphabetically by subject and correspondent. Subject correspondence deals with coaching applicants, physical facilities, university administration, personnel associations, insurance, alumni, and publicity. Principal correspondents, as designated by folder titles, include Stan Bates, Chuck Brayton, Dale Brown , John Chaplin, Homer Drew, C. Clement French, Marv Harshman, Jud Heathcoate, Roger James, Brad Munn, Ray Nagel, Glen Oman, Rick Sloan, and Glenn Terrell.

The second series contains financial records of the Athletic Department. Data for the years 1928 through 1950 is recorded in seven oversize financial ledgers. Partial records of game receipts, accountants' statements for 1955 through 1966, and departmental budgets 1950 through 1976 are included. The affiliation of Washington State University and the Athletic Department with athletic conferences is evidenced in the third series by minutes, correspondence, and administrative materials of the Athletic Association of Western Universities (1958-1969) and the Pacific 8 Conference (1968-1975). Reports, Correspondence, and committee material concerning the Rose Bowl is also included.

The bulk of the fourth series, National Collegiate Athletic Association, consists of an Extra Events subseries, which includes certification data, committee reports, and correspondence. The remainder of the series includes correspondence, reports, and television committee materials.

Athletic records, series five, consists of managers' reports of athletic performances and an oversize ledger containing Compiled records of baseball, basketball, and football games for the years 1894 through 1951.

The final series is made up of twenty-five black and white photographs and fifty-four reels of super-8 motion picture film depicting a variety of athletic activities.

The folders of each series are arranged alphabetically by subject and correspondent while the original order within each folder has been maintained.
